Apple’s Pascal “Syntax” Poster

I ran across an interesting page [archive] recently. It gives the history behind the, well, not-so-famous Apple Pascal poster, put together by Jef Raskin, father of the Macintosh, to serve as a reference (and a bit of an advertisement) for Apple Pascal developers. There is interesting drama to be found in the rather odd coloration of the poster and Steve Jobs’ hand in helping color it away from practical usability. In the end, Raskins didn’t even get credited with it.

I’d never seen or heard of this poster prior to stumbling across this story. We’ll see if a copy ends up on my computer cellar wall one day….
