comment Why were punch cards used for programming
even in the 1990s I was given 5 minutes of computer time for an entire semester at university for my programming assignment. Luckily the screen editor used next to no CPU time when typing in the Pascal code, or it wouldn't have been enough to last those months. Everyone wrote their programs on paper, cross checked and corrected themselves and others using paper programming manuals, then had the program ok'd for entry by the teaching assistant, and only then was it painstakingly typed in, every character double checked with the paper original to ensure there were no typos to fool the compiler.

comment How can I hide my signature in a program?
@duozmo nothing wrong with working together (IF the assignment allows it of course), long as you don't end up doing someone else's work for them. And no, my fellow students were never enemies when I was in university. At worst they were competitors for the nicest assignments.
