Sure. But the roiginal statement was 'any computer'. Not 'any computer
that suported a compiler for any language'.
Was there ever a Fortran for the HP9000/200 series machines? I'ev not
heard of one, but I'd be suprised if it didn't exist. They were aimed at
the scientific/laboratory market, they certainly had enough computer
power to run Fortran (8 MHZ 68000, 256K or more RAM), and they did
suppoer a pascal compiler.
