Cleaning out my apartment this weekend, I ran across a bunch of old cartoons
from "Creative Computing" I had saved from my singularly geeky childhood. :-)
Anyways, one of them depicts "FORTRAN - Monster From the Unknown!" in one
of those low-budget "giant monster attacks city" movie posters. A sidebar
"See the battle of the snowplows! The enire population of
Cleveland Ohio compiled in a single pass!"
What's a "snowplow"? If it's a compiler term, its certainly fallen from
favor, as no compiler text I can find mentions it.

two for Creative Computing. -John]
