I didn't know that Wirth had been directly associated with IBM. I did 
know that while at Stanford he'd supervised Larry Breed who was writing 
the first fairly-complete computerised APL implementation, but my 
recollection is that they used FORTRAN since it was the only language 
that ran on the various computers that the involved parties had available.
