1990's C-code recovery #software #programming #c
During this years stay-at-home vacation, I've been cleaning out old eletronics, cables, harddisks and other things that had gathered under my bed.
One of the old SCSI-harddisks I found had the source code of my first "large" C-project - just above 8000 lines of code, which implemented a DOS program that handled results from the Danish cross country skiing championships for a couple of years in the 1990's.
I've put the recovered code in a git-repository along with a README, so I know where it is.
I have very little recollection about the actual code, except I remember implementing linked lists, badly, myself.

I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
