SAP's ABAP (Day 2)

Had no luck the the trains today, one at Clapham needed re-booting twice, before it was declared dead. The unusual heat apparently meant there were speed restrictions on my way home. I'm not sure which scares me most, the though that they tried to reboot the train, or that today's not so hot weather was cause for speed restrictions...

However I learnt a lot more about ABAP (think COBOL + SQL) today. It's verbose, simple, and missing all the syntactic sugar that I'm use to in Perl. On the upside, or downside depending upon how you see these things, it does do TMTOWTDI. In fact there are often many ways of doing things, some only work with the newer versions of SAP, some only with the old, and confusingly there aren't any idioms to follow...
