A sad note. Professor Edsger Dijkstra has died. His work touched my life, as a computer science grad student in the 1970s, learning Algol after being trained in Fortran. Dijkstra was the advocate of goto-less programming, and argued that Algol-like languages should omit the sin that Fortran and Basic depended on for logic and looping. A strange concept at first, I don't think he managed to get the goto out of Algol, it's definitely in Pascal and I think it's in C; but get this -- there's no goto statement in my favorite Algol-like language, the one that's baked into Radio and Frontier. Let that be a humble tribute to Professor Dijkstra from an admiring student.
