Whats fun is when you run into a compiler that starts choking on those 
line labels.

Here is a simple rosetta pebble

for(i=1;i<=N,i++)
  {
    do_some_work(&i);
  }

can be written in fortran (notice the lower case of those of us who 
could use those 110 baud and 300 baud speed demon terminals, and 
couldn't be bothered to press the shift key as it would slow us down...)

do i=1,N
  call do_some_work(i)
enddo

(on the count of three say "oooooooooh" ...)
