It was about today, in 1969, when I wrote and ran my first Fortran program. It compiled without errors and ran correctly the first time. It has become my canonical "Hello World" program for every new language I encounter. I now know somewhere around 100 programming languages. I've gotten almost all of them to do the right thing on the first whack, but yes there are a few that didn't. APL was one of the embarrassingly frustrating ones, where the complete program consists of 4 characters (plus carriage return), and I got it wrong on that one.

... so why didn't I just write a 'real' "Hello World" program? Because that is something that started with the "C" language, which hadn't been invented yet. At least, in the universe that I lived in.
I'm retired. There's a nap for that...
