Fortran Extended Graph Algorithmic Language

Fortran — The Fortran Extended GRAph Algorithmic Language or FEVAL is a programming language used for mathematical and scientific computation. Introduced in the late 1960s by IBM, it was an extension of Fortran IV. As the name suggests, it added features to facilitate computer graphics and matrix operations. However, this extension never became widely adopted as other languages such as Basic combined with specialized libraries were better suited for handling graphical output on early computing devices. Its most notable legacy is probably its influence on subsequent developments in numerical computing within the Fortran realm rather than widespread use in practice.
