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!

    ...and what were you doing at school today Pierre?

    It was great! We spent the whole afternoon doing LSD! :)

    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

    I can't see why English should have the monopoly, and I'm quite surprised the Ministry of Culture haven't intervened to prevent computerise going the same way a l'weekend and l'sandwich :)

    My first "High Level Language" was indeed LSE. I thought you made up the LSD part before following you link. In a parisian meeting of Les mongueurs de Perl we discovered we were many having learnt LSE.
