* I've no idea. I never kept any from college ( they didn't have IBM 360s one could take home at the time).
* We were required to learn Fortran-4 when I was at Texas Tech. There was one computer center for the whole university. The business college had some desktops, but they used BASIC or some other language.
* Perhaps we have some members who are up on who's learning Fortran today.
I hadn't heard that word mentioned until the movie, 'Hidden Figures' came out.
