in thread Macros, LFSPs and LFMs

Hey, don't laugh, a whole bunch of French Comp-Sci students learnt first a language named LSE (link in French, of course!) and its ancestor LSD (! For Langage Sans Difficulté - Painless Language) which was a cross between Pascal and Basic, using French keywords!

    You'll have to imagine the cartoon French accents. I tried typing them, but my French is so lousy I was likely to offend someone
