Blame K&R with C with the '=' and '==' mess because assignment is a
operation. I never hear that C or PASCAL have problems.
I find the pseudo code often less confusing than real languages.
the one I like best uses indentation for structure.
while k do
.if foo then
..do this thing
..do that thing
! end while
