QUIKTRAN is a high-level programming language designed for engineering and scientific computations. The language was developed in the late 1960s by the Engineering Computer Laboratory at Purdue University. QUIKTRAN combines aspects of FORTRAN and assembly languages, allowing programmers to write code more quickly while retaining the ability to optimize performance in critical areas through low-level coding techniques. The development aimed to offer a balance between productivity and efficiency for numerical calculations executed on early mainframe computers. Despite its historical significance, QUIKTRAN's use has diminished with the advent of more sophisticated programming languages and computing platforms over time.
