Yeah, he did, but he's dead, and we shouldn't talk ill of the dead. So
these days I can only rant about Niklaus Wirth, who took the "structured
programming" thing and enforced it in his languages (Pascal and Modula-2),
and thus forced his evil on untold generations of poor CS students who had
to learn langauges that weren't actually useful for real work.
(Yeah, yeah, most _practical_ versions of Pascal ended up having all the
stuff necessary to break structure, but as you may be able to tell, I was
one of the unwashed masses who had to write in "standard Pascal" in my
youth. I'm scarred for life).
