RPG was originally written by IBM for the IBM 360.

Admiral Grace Hopper was instrumental in the design of COBOL. In addition to
being credited with coining the term "bug", I believe she once challenged a
group of conservative programmers to take more risks by telling them "it's
easier to apologize, than to ask for permission."
