Speaking "pseudo"--
I have a PhD in English and have later retrained in Computer Information
Systems. The first programming course (Fortran) I took was taught by
a PhD in math/stats. When discussing program design techniques he talked
at length about the value of passado (rhymes with El Dorado) code. I assumed
this was a system of notation developed by some guy called, oh perhaps, Anton
Passado. Then he wrote it on the board. To my eternal shame, I didn't have
the courage to tll him what he was doing (and I was in my 40's so youthful
respect for age wasn't the reason)
