I never knew, since usually don't eat Quiche.
But todays Featured Article[^] made me realize that I am.
Pascal was the first language I did something more advanced than "Hello World" in.

Funny how the same discussion goes on still today if you substitute Fortran and Pascal for C# and VB or any languages of your choice.

But the best part is the description of the RPC-4000

The new computer had a one-plus-one addressing scheme, in which each machine instruction, in addition to the operation code and the address of the needed operand, had a second address that indicated where, on the revolving drum, the next instruction was located. In modern parlance, every single instruction was followed by a GO TO!
