This is an interesting article, but the code is hard to read because of the formatting. I'm assuming it wasn't intentional to have the code double-spaced and without indentation?

Our codebase was all lowercase. Perhaps they did it that way because we were on Stratus computers, not mainframes? I never thought to ask anyone.
