One of my friends was trying to write a program to run on a Connection
Machine. He used the construct

DOALL I = 1, N

and the program RAN, but it gave wrong answers. He eventually
discovered that CM FORTRAN doesn't have the DOALL extension, and that
the compiler was dutifully converting his code to

DO ALLI = 1, N

Thank god he wasn't writing code for the Range Safety Officer on the
next shuttle launch!
