Kind of like our level 5 computer programming badge. (GS)
Should punching up a control card for a keypunch, or line printer tape loop count? (especially if the printer tape did more than 1h1)
There should be a special version if you used punch cards on a machine without ink.
that’s how I learned to program FORTRAN
before that I use a teletype and programmed in BASIC
Learned FORTRAN & COBOL this way…and got first case of carpal tunnel that my orthopedic surgeon had ever seen…Good Times!
Learned fortran this way on a Cyber 74.
Also learned to keep the damn lid on the damn box.
I last did that in 1980 but I still have a few punch cards around the house that can be used as note cards
Does paper tape qualify?
