Just for interest really - the Honeywell H316 was a 16kword by 16 bit machine with core storage, paper tape I/O and a printer. No disks! No mag tapes!

This is not, so far as I'm aware, a very-multi-pass Fortran compiler

More general info on the machine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honeywell_316

A bit of a backgrounder on the 1950's invention and introduction of Fortran:

"An account of the development of FORTRAN by those who did it."
(including the difficulty of believing a machine could produce code nearly as well as a person could)
