I took a Fortran course over 20 years ago. Fortunately the school had
phased out punch cards by then, though the text often referred to them.
Back in those days, we used an IBM mainframe at school and I did my
homework on a VAX 11/780 (at work, not at home ;-) ).

At one point in my career, I also used to service punch card equipment.
