Hi MarkMLl

In the early years when I started working, punched cards was also used.
I have also seen large mainframes with large tape recorders.
Teletype terminals (VT ...)
I had a punched card to register at the factory (time registration)
punched card was also used as a means of payment.

:-) No, not VT but the entirely-mechanical ones... ASR33 and the like.

:-) I might still have a set of the manuals somewhere. The bottom line is that the only electrical devices were a motor, a single electromagnet for printing, and a rotating commutator on the keyboard. One man could carry one- unlike the Olivetti I owned once which had been carefully "reimagined" to circumvent the patents and which replaced every pressed-metal part with a machined-and-bolted subassy which could easily drift out of alignment... I heard that the maintenance course was 12 weeks.

It's difficult to imagine terminals which predate microprocessors, but "glass teletypes" with varying degrees of sophistication and ingenuity go back to the 1960s.

@Re-searcher: you /really/ don't want to get me going on this stuff :-)

Hello re searcher.
I am no spring chicken either.

Remember that pascal string and freebasic string are not the same thing.
You need ansistring, or the switch for ansistring to get a reasonable representation.
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1.  
  2.  
  3.  {$H+}            // String is now an alias for AnsiString
  4.  
  5.     type
  6.   ConstMeta = record
  7.     Value: String;
  8.     Startup: String;
  9.   end;
  10.  
  11.   var s:ConstMeta;
  12.  
  13.  
  14. begin
  15. s.Value:='aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa';
  16. s.Value:=s.Value+s.Value;
  17.  s.Value:=s.Value+s.Value;
  18.  s.Value:=s.Value+s.Value;
  19.  s.Value:=s.Value+s.Value;
  20.  s.Value:=s.Value+s.Value;
  21.  
  22. writeln;
  23. writeln(s.Value);
  24.  
  25. readln;
  26. end.

@BobDog
Thanks for this information.

@MarkMLl

When I was born at the time, there were no computers and printers (asr33)
This type of printer is not stored in my memory brain only Mechanical desktop typewriters not with electronic like asr33

I have learned to write with a pen with ink from a bottle.

That contained NO ELECTRONICS.

Yes, and when I was at school the desks had inkwells next to each pupil and we used dip pens, none of these fountain pens or Biros.

I lie: we had Biros in primary school, but after that were expected to learn how to do things properly.
