    The date on the manual for the IBM 704 manual is
    October 15th, 1956.

    So, 66 years ago today.

    I was remembering in another thread that the allowed
    input forms for E, F, and G format include values with
    exponent sign but no E. 70.+1 for example.

    This is still in the standard now, though rarely used.
