IIRC I learned C first.

The compiler was ICC on OS/2 Warp 3.

Yea, I'm kinda surprised that there aren't more people on here who hark back to that era.

First languages were FORTRAN IV and IITRAN on a IBM 360, later upgraded to a Univac 1108 and all programmed with a deck of Hollerith cards.

I wonder how the performance of those machines compares with the performance of a Raspberry Pi?

Hi, Community,
to mention some old arts:
My first programming language was COBOL, followed by PL/I (both IBM-Host), later in PC times came C, all these languages accompanied by batch, shell, JCL. Today there are Java and all the other web stuff. In private I use AHK.
Have a nice day,
Klaus

Hi, Community,
to mention some old arts:
My first programming languages were COBOL and Assembler, followed by REXX (all IBM-Host), later in PC times came Basic, C, all these languages accompanied by batch, shell, JCL. Today there are Java and all the other web stuff. I use AHK in private and for many, many little tasks in my job.
Have a nice day,

(If you don't count very basics of HTML at 1998 or so.)

My first language was C. Maybe 2000. Without a hint what I am doin'.
With the original book The Programming Lanuguage C (first edition) by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie

But all that without a computer! Think what you want, but after the book, I couldn't program anything. No wonder. :D. It was a time, before the internet was popular and widely available. After a headcrunsh and buying a computer, I searched for years for the right programming language, learned and tried a lot of basic stuff (not 'BASIC', I mean 'simple') in many languages. Someday, I found AutoHotkey... and the story begins. :lol:

In my school time, we did not have computers and no programming lessons. :(
