One of my very first coding challenge was in 1994, I was working printing B/Ls (Bill of lading) ... everything was fine, all fields placed in the proper place , nice fonts and colors... so when the users saw that everything was in the right place, he asked to place automatically (or automagically!!!!!) the stamps that they put manually... In the most of languages you don't know what you sent to the printer after that you already did it... well finally I could resolve it creating a matrix in order to store the print outs , then look for the available space to place the STAMPS.... Usually they call me to RE DO the programs after the programs is not being supported by the O.S...... (4 times in 25 years!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) )
