Programming on Paper

From: <(>

In the past I have tried to write code to paper and failed to do much with
it. Outlines are about as far as I can go. I did this because I wanted to
continue work or pass the time when I didn't have a machine in front of me
(in high-school or waiting in the Doctor's office).

Having a machine to interact with allows you to test your code on the spot
and if you are writing in an interpreted language the error-checking the
interpreter provides is a godsend for the coder. Why anyone would code
without the interaction of the target machine is beyond me.
