Abstract

In 1982 FORTRAN will have existed in the environment of computers, computing and computation for 25 years, making it one of the most successful of programming languages even if it is not the actual oldest still surviving language. The honor of being the Oldest still belongs to APT (Automatic Programmed Tool.) This report is the script of talk given at several institutions during the Spring of 1982 and serves as a Skeleton on which a broader history is to be developed.
