Yep, PL/I was a great language. My first stunt was opening up partitioned 
dataset and treating it as sequential to play with the header. Yes, I had 
backups.

I worked for a consulting organization for a while. I was at that time a network 
person, but the first thing they did was put me in as site lead for a 200+ node 
HP-UX site.

I had touched HP-UX twice, being mostly a SunOS and DEC Ultrix (Berkeley UNIX) 
person. No crash course offered, just threw me into the pool and see if I could 
take a broken site / team and fix it.

Fun times . . .

Just to mess with you, it's really PL/I ...


It was a fantastic, leading edge language that should have had a much better 
future than it really did.

I was a PL-I expert. That's why I know it's spelled PL-I  (roman numerals 
not arabic. I always thought this was funny)
