My copy is, alas, long gone, but I got it in either '84 or '85. I was
working at JPL at the time, assisting a blind programmer who was busy
doing pointer arithmetic in FORTRAN77[1]. He's the only person I ever
knew who could write PL/1 programs in FORTRAN instead of the other way
around.

[1]It's amazing, isn't it, what you can do if you turn of bounds
checking on arrays and know what you're doing?
