30 Anniversary of PASCAL

Oh the memories of undergraduate bubble-sorts ... (from slashdot)

Funny story about bubble-sorts. A friend from college, Joe, was in our intro Computer Science course. One of the questions on the test was to do a bubble-sort in a program. Joe writes down code which calls "bubble sort". That was it. He got partial credit.

Getting partial credit when you don't know the answer is both an art and a science.
