Re: 2 million lines of FORTRAN code @Ian Bush

When I learnt it, it was FORTRAN. It's only since that trendy upstart Fortran 90 came along, with it's free-form input, long variable names and pointers (amongst other corruptions) that the capitalisation changed.

I've not written much in the last 25 years, so it's still FORTRAN to me.

But please not, a lot of the Unified Model is still written in FORTRAN 77 and earlier, so the case is a moot point!
