    yes, all that old code exists still today from people taking short cuts of copying and pasting old code. Any loop or code you can think of can be found on open source and math labs at universities. Hell I just replaced a grocery store chains software they were still using windows 3.1. All those old ftp protocalls can be called at any time. All that is still in the miocrosoft reference library and still can be called upon in windows at any time.

    Yeah, it's been a long time since FORTRAN Classes..My last was Window 95...But basic is still used so it's easier than one may think.

    Fortran is still in heavy use for mathmatical computations today. I still use the old comma delimited databasing becuase it is so much simpler, comm del does not care if the entry is long,short, or any other thing it just sits between it delimiter, count the right amount of commas and it returns the right answer. So much simpler!

    I had to take it for an electronic engineering degree..I was so used to doing it in my head I never felt the need to have a computer do it.
