A quick search reveals that historically most things were just procedural.

Wikipedia can tell you more.

the apollo guidance computer's rom was programmed by old ladies. the bits (ferrite rings) were literally hand woven into a big bundle of wires. its what they call core rope memory.

Curious type of magnetic memory, to be sure, but how did the designers figure out which bit went where?

[Edit] Curios is not Curious, but it is intriguing... :drevil:

i figure the people who did the programming converted the machine code, by hand, into a weaving pattern and let the old ladies do what they do best.
