digitalmars.D - OT: ABEL programming language

I've noticed that on Walter's homepage, he says he created the ABEL 
programming language for Data I/O.
The Wikipeadia entry for ABEL says that it was invented by Walter Hill 
at HP labs. This seems to be from a 1989 book  by Canning.
Anyone want to fix this? (naturally adding a link to D).

Are you looking at the wrong ABEL? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Boolean_Expression_Language vs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abel_(object-oriented_programming_language) -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

On other wikipedia entries, Walter Bright's article does not mention ABEL (the article is very short all-in-all), and the Empire page does not mention the D version. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango
