Wow, PL-I, I'm learning about that in my language design class.  While it brought a bunch of new items to the computing field, can't say I'm upset I didn't code in it :).

Sorry guys, I came into existence just about the time the internet was opened up from just NSF to commercial interest, so punch cards are a little out of my league.  I must say though, this certainly beats the heck out of a history of computing languages class any day!
