Here are the first few lines of a program I wrote over 40 years ago, an early attempt to model a massively parallel processor architecture.
No, the program is nothing special. And there are much better ways to create practical multiprocessor/multicore systems. The reason why I copy-pasted this image here has to do with something else: the fact that it was written in the Pascal programming language.
Pascal was just one of the many creations of one of the giants of computer science, Niklaus Wirth.
I learned yesterday that Wirth, who was born back in 1934, passed away on January 1.
