In the invention of the compiler - Rear Admiral Grace Hopper

This quote was added by sigma15
There sat that beautiful big machine whose sole job was to copy things and do addition. Why not make the computer do it? That's why I sat down and wrote the first compiler. It was very stupid. What I did was watch myself put together a program and make the computer do what I did.
