0x7D4 October 0x13:

Yesterday, I encountered an interesting programming language with elegant syntax and an interesting technique for flow control that seemed both utterly absurd and brilliant.

I was quite puzzled by why any language that made so much sense could have been abandoned, for it turns out the language in question was none other than COBOL.

However, I can't remember any of the syntax anymore. Just that it was nifty.

And, unfortunately, the version of COBOL that exists in the waking world isn't nearly so interesting as the one I dreamed.
