My first programming was in assembler for the DEC PDP-1 computer. Later some guys at MIT wrote a FORTRAN compiler for the beast.
Since then I have programmed &/or taught programming in a few flavors of BASIC, FORTRAN, Pascal, PL-1, C, C++ and a few others that I forget.
Did tiny bits also in Forth, RPG, Lisp, Logo, Mumps, and Pilot.
I avoided Algol and APL, and once attempted to write (strictly from the manual) a simple program in COBOL, but it never worked, mainly, I suspect, because I didn't have the patience to spell out long-winded stuff like "Environment Division."
