  FORTRAN Bubble Sort Speghetti Code This program is written the style of the earliest FORTRAN. It reads up to 15 integers, stopping either when it gets 15, or when -1 is input. It then sorts them and prints the result. The read loop is created by the GOTO 10 instruction, and exits by jumping either to line 40 (if a -1 was input) or 70 after the 15th number is entered.

The inner sort loop extends from line 50 to the GOTO 50, and the outer from 70 to GOTO 70. The 90 line leaves the inner loop, and the 100 line leaves the outer one.

Printing is accomplished with a DO loop, the most advanced control construct available.
