That reminds me of when I studied Fortran around 1973. We were advised that the new mainframe was so fast, we should end all programs like this to be sure the program actually stopped: :-) 10 STOP STOP STOP GO TO 10 (I did assembly language full-time for seven years, and I too think of assembly mnemonics when I see local license plates. BNE branch not equal, SRA shift right arithmetic, etc.) --Ph. D.
