Wow.  That takes me back.   I still miss Algol (before they messed it up) 
and Simula.  The PDP assemblers were awfully pretty.

Don't go there man...

Not only was I once fluent in Prolog (How to shoot yourself in the foot
with Prolog: You look down and see a hole in your foot, and from that
infer that the gun was fired....), but I have at one time or another
programmed in APL (it's all Greek to me), PL/1, OS/VS1 on a 370, and
SNOBOL (with it's compiler SPITBOL), not to mention such museum pieces
as WATFOR, Fortran II, and PDP-8 assembler.

I get stranger things than Prolog in my breakfast serial.
