​Very true. ​There is a very old quote: "You can write FORTRAN in any
language." Basically FORTRAN was, I think, the very first "high level"
language (1957 - COBOL was in 1959) and it had very poor (NO) structuring.
Coding it in is much like writing a bad mathematical proof (yes, I know
FORTRAN). When better languages came along, the original programmers wrote
code in the "if it were only FORTRAN" mode.

Heisenberg may have been here.
