Heh ... for me it was Perl and Fortran, circa 1992-1995. I automated
some of my work flows. Which was something rare back then. Turns out
leveraging automation for a parametric scan on long running code (back
then, its fast as heck these days) is a very good thing.
One of my first projects in the late 80's early 90's was trying to use a
self-consistent field code developed in the early 60's or so. I
literally transcribed it from the text in the library, into my editor,
and then corrected some of the glaringly antiquated bits. Like the tape
I wound up developing my own code later, using more modern techniques.
All in Fortran.
In some ways, I miss using it.
These days, I use Julia, Perl, C, and some Python for most of my stuff,
though I dabble a little in go (all the cool kids are using it).
But yeah, Fortran is awesome.
