THE FUTURE! OF PROGRAMMING! NOW!


Amusing article from 1981 on Babbage - The [programming] language of the future

For years, programming languages have used "FOR," "DO UNTIL," "DO WHILE," etc. to mean "LOOP." Continuing with this trend, Babbage offers the following loop statements:

DON'T DO WHILE NOT - This loop is not executed if the test condition is not false (or if it's Friday afternoon).

DIDN'T DO - The loop executes once and hides all traces.

CAN'T DO - The loop is pooped.

DO-WAH - Used to write timing loops for computer-generated music (Rag Timing).
