Damn! you're definitely right.
At vwery very least Pascal could not be before Algol-68, which could not be
before... ahem.
But now I wonder myself....


Here, found it at last!!!!
   look at the picture.
I scanned the 1st number looked like year and it just imprinted without any
I remember i was slightly surprised like "so early? such a mighty man!" but
just imprinted the number and passed by.
I was deep into another theme and year was not important to me, so i just
scanned it, noted and went one without single though about possibility.

After all computaiton basis like Turing Machine and Lambda Calculus were
developed somewhere around those years. At the moment it did seemes
unbelievable but not impossible.

Really, i embarassed myself, thanks for pointing it.
