Christophoros Juan they had a team of a few dozen old programmers came in to fix some ancient programs when I worked at the pharmaceutical company. as somebody who cobbled together code there too, I completely understand why they were needed. when you write a program, you just want it to work. The people that pay you don’t care about robustness because they assume you built it in. years go by, they keep using the program but the programmer left long ago.
