I was thinking the same thing. There were some programs I worked on during
the early seventies where the computer did not have a clue about the date or
time. The input "deck" contained this information which was basically just
echoed on to the printouts. I remember running batch jobs [large decks]
where the only cards that would get changed were a few parameters and the
leading "identity" card....
