I think I still have 'McCracken on FORTRAN'. If anyone wants it for the
cost of mailing, I'll go up to the warehouse and check. In fact, I have
about two dozen titles that I will cheerfully give away (for the cost of
mailing), but refuse to throw away. I'll grab them this weekend and post a

No, that's a different book from _FORTRAN For Humans_.

Funny, I only remember boring data processing text books, like the one
that told us how to use a keypunch and how to interpret punched cards,
an important skill when I got to U of Maryland and found that the 029
keypunches in the basement of the CS building often did not have fresh
ribbons. (Bill and I attended the same high school, where there was
an HP 3000 Series II (upgraded to a Series III in 1980 I think) for
administrative and academic use.)

But then I might not have paid a FORTRAN text much attention, having
picked that up when we were supposed to be learning BASIC and being
more interested at that time in SPL/3000.
