FORTRAN

 

"Real programmers don't need all these abstract concepts to get their jobs done -- they are perfectly happy with a keypunch, a FORTRAN IV compiler, and a beer.

Real Programmers do List Processing in FORTRAN.

Real Programmers do String Manipulation in FORTRAN.

Real Programmers do Accounting (if they do it at all) in FORTRAN.

Real Programmers do Artificial Intelligence programs in FORTRAN.

If you can't do it in FORTRAN, do it in assembly language. If you can't do it in assembly language, it isn't worth doing."

from "Real Programmers" by Ed Post, 1983

Will Crowther's Adventure game is from ~1976, but the calendar has obviously been hanging here since 1969...
