Не в силах вынести искажения исторической действительности, задал Кайту вопрос:
you said that the first Oracle version was written in Fortran.
In “The 1995 SQL Reunion” paper I found the following words of Roger Bamford: Version 2 had been written in assembly language for PDP-11.
I'm sure you have access to information about early days of Oracle. Could you please clarify this point?
Через пару дней пришел ответ:
I went back and checked some notes....
....While much of the system was written in PDP-11 assembler language, parts were developed in the emerging new language C....
so, I’ve updated my slide—it was pdp-11 assember and C and was from there ported to VAX.
thanks for the followup on that detail!
Я считаю, это большой успех отечественной археологии.
