This sites contains files on the history of computer programming language statements. The files compare programming language statements in several different languages tracing the statement from early languages to present languages.

The files are used in advanced programming classes so our students can compare statements in several old and present languages.
If you have questions about programming language statement history or esoteric points about statement use, feel free to e-mail me. A good subject line, will help me find your request from all the spam mail and aid you getting a response.
