By now the reader has likely divined that the writer was educated in the "antediluvian time," Those were the days when $50 slide rules and IBM 360 mainframe computers, (at SIM in 1960s currency--with computational power equivalent to today's desktops) complete with self-typed keypunch cards, shared the engineers' hands and mind: if not in the former's ease-of-use ubiquity then the latter's digital luminosity.
While the machine effort--the IBM 360 family--was a great success, the language design effort leading to PL/1 was a failure, partly due to its much-criticized complexity [2].
