So in middle school we had a computer lab, and in the lab we programmed in Pascal.
This is startlingly close to what my first high level language program consisted of:
Pascal is an imperative and procedural programming language, which Niklaus Wirth designed in 1968–69 and published in 1970, as a small, efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring. It is named in honor of the French mathematician, philosopher and physicist Blaise Pascal.
program Cheese; var c: char; begin writeln('Do you like cheese? y/n'); readln(c); if c = 'y' then writeln('Good') else writeln('Bad'); end.
There is no shame in coming from somewhere.
There is shame in never going anywhere.
