PILOT Programming Language Concepts

PILOT Programming Language Concepts

PILOT Programming Language Concepts - The full form of PILOT programming language is Programmed Instruction Learning or Teaching, which was developed in 1960. Pilot language was developed by John Amsden Starkweather, who was a Psychology Professor at University of California, San Francisco. LOGO is the younger sibling of PILOT programming language.

Syntax of PILOT Programming language

The pilot language code contains few important syntax such as –

  1. An optional label – It is alone in a line, not followed by other code.

  2. A command letter – It consist letter for initiation in program, where each letter is uniquely declared. Like R for indicating a remark for comment.

  3. An optional Y or N (Where Y is Yes and N is No)

  4. A conditional expressions within the parenthesis.

  5. A colon – "…….."

  6. One or more operand delimited by commas.

Some facts regarding Command Letters

The command letter are used in Core Pilot to declare different initiation from A to Y. The initiation of each letter is explained below.

  1. A - Letter – For accepting buffer

  2. C - Letter – Compute and assign numeric value.

  3. D – Letter – Dimension on array during implementation

  4. E – Letter – It is used without any operand. The end subroutine return from or abort program

  5. J – letter – Jump to level.

  6. M – Match the accepted buffer against string variables and literals.

  7. N – Letter – Type if last match unsuccessful

  8. R – Letter – It has no effect because operand of R is Comment.

  9. T – Letter – To type operand as output.

  10. U –Letter – It is used to call a subroutine. The subroutine should starts with a label and ends with E.

  11. Y – letter – Type if last match successful.

In 1991, IEEE published a standard for Pilot as IEEE Std 1154-1991, afterwards it was withdrawn. A dedicated implementation based on this was implemented by Eric Raymond. In 1990 esteem PILOT for Atari ST Computers was developed and programmed by Tom Nielsen. It includes Atari-specific features such as control of Laserdisc and CDROM devices.

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware - We are familiar with malware attacks on Computer. The hackers infect one or more files and thereby attaining full control on the System. There are millions of victims who had loosen either data or dollars in this respect. In this article we see a System file which is infected by these hackers at first stage. The System file infected by malware at first stage is Task Scheduler Engine (Taskeng.exe). The Task Scheduler Engine is a system file located in C:\Windows\System32 folder. This location is the default location for Taskeng.exe.

The Task Scheduler Engine is responsible for keeping track of tasks set to run at a time predefined by the user of the PC. As said earlier, the original location of this scheduler is C:\Windows\System32 folder. But it is suspicious if the location of scheduler gets change. If it is found in some other folder then it must be infectious. As a result, you constantly get a…

How to Project Android Phone Screen on Windows PC

Project Android Phone Screen on Windows PC - Four out of Five of us have Smartphones in our Pocket. We spend lots of time on Smartphone utilities like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube and other interesting Apps. These Smartphones are tremendously used due to Android Operating System installed in it. Android OS is one the successful mobile based OS running in the market.

On the Other side, Microsoft is emphasizing on features to ease Android user's connectivity with it. Microsoft has done lots of improvement for mobile utilities to the Windows 10 version 1809. With this upgradation, we can easily project Android phone screen on Windows PC. The extensive use of such features is seen on Digital Smart TVs Today. The introduction of Wi-Fi feature makes more reliable and user friendly.

So, if you are boredom with 5-6-inch Android Screen and want to mirror it on Computer screen, then read the full article to know the process, how to proj…

Fix Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter error

A Computer run smoothly with the coordination of Software & Hardware. In the absence of any one it will not run at all. Software being the Master utilizes each hardware attached to the System. And each hardware is operated with the help of Device Drivers installed in it. Operating System (OS) uses these device drivers to control & utilize each hardware when needed. Each hardware connected to the system must have their own Device Driver installed. A device driver is a program to initiate a hardware when required by Operating System.

Suppose, you want your PC to connect to the Network, it can only be possible when your PC has network related Device Driver. These Device Drivers are easily downloaded from Manufacturer Websites. In this article we focus on Network related problem. Suppose, your PC not obtaining Network connectivity. And each time you are getting an error message saying "Windows could not find a d…
