I was remembering in comp.lang.fortran that the date on
the first Fortran manual, for the 704, is October 15th, 1956.

Depending on individual viewpoint, that may or may not
be important in the history of compilers, though.

(And I don't know when the compiler was actually out.)

Anyway, 66 years ago today!
