I have a copy of McCracken.
I too used a library copy of this book as my first reference in a Fortran undergrad course in 1972. The copy I now have was purchased from Amazon last August (it cost £2.78, with p&p free). I can loan it to you if you like, but first, I want you to justify to everyone why teaching such archaic junk really is A Good Idea.
Kind regards

P.S. Amazon has more copies, starting at £0.01 plus £2.80 P&P, and going up to £77.67...

Hi Ian,

Just had a look and unfortunately I can't find McCracken. It was my first Fortran book that I had at Leicester Poly

but I must have thrown it out.
