Calmamity: ... and is still what the VA uses.
Fritriac: Wow! I heard of that about 30 years ago at my university. Never saw a single line of code in Simula, but some guys i used to know had to learn the language, because there was still a Univac in use./C++, Java, PHP when it comes to OOP
Mr. Eugenides: Calmamity: ... and is still what the VA uses.The VA uses MUMPS.
Benjimin_Dover: Before Simula 67, however, Nygaard and Dahl first wrote an earlier version of the language, called Simula I in 1964.What happened to Simula 2 through 66?
xkillyourfacex: How did they compile back then?
mcreadyblue: Mr. Eugenides: Calmamity: ... and is still what the VA uses.The VA uses MUMPS.Isn't it just called "M" now a days?
Fark like a Barsoomian: Mr. Eugenides: Calmamity: ... and is still what the VA uses.The VA uses MUMPS.I was sure this was a joke, but it's not./thanks for this thread//now I don't feel so old///I feel AppleDOS and Apple BASIC young
Pharque-it: xkillyourfacex: How did they compile back then?Teletype and papertape...
daveinsurgent: /don't see real software legends barking on about test driven development or object oriented programming//they care about algorithms, computational theory, and just getting things done
Linux_Yes: that's weird, i always thought the VA uses chumps, the fork of mumps.
