Home page for Robert Stockton

Robert Stockton (that's me) works as a research programmer for the Computer Science department at Carnegie Mellon University. When he's not hacking compilers and environments for the Gwydion Project, he may sometimes be found playing the Irish harp -- specializing in filk, folk, and renaissance music.

He's been around the web for a few years now, and still hasn't gotten used to some of the newfangled innovations that are the norm nowadays. Therefore, you won't find much in the way of fancy graphics, tables, blinking cursors, etc. here -- as you have probably already noticed -- but he hopes you'll find some solid and/or interesting information. Isn't that what the Web is all about?

Useful pages I maintain:

  • The Perl 4 man page (formatted, heavily indexed, and searchable)

  • HTML manipulation tools

    All of these tools were written for my own use, and fall into the "quick hack" category. I am not terribly proud of their appearance or "cleanliness", but they get the job done for me and might help you as well.
