My best coding memories are still attached to metaprogramming,
specifically Clarion for DOS.

Maintenance was real easy: change the model (templates) and possibly
some include files (embeds), hit the generate button, and the full
application was regenerated and compiled. We even did that while
demonstrating the application: when an idea from the audience was real
good, we could adapt the model, regenerate, and proceed the demo.

Affijn, Ruud
