Hmm. So one of them appears to be Pascal, specifically a Pascal that didn't barf if until was preceded b a semicolon. Haven't a clue what the others are, but I'll hazard that they're related to Symbolics Lisp.

In the movie the control system appears to be a tower of Macs and SG computers.
JP was filmed in 1992 and came out in '93, so this would be OS 9 (?) - DK, I bought my first Mac in 2008.

"The crew filmed scenes for the Park's labs and control room, which used animations for the computers lent by Silicon Graphics and Apple." (Wikipedia).

(I noticed this a few weeks ago when we watched the movie.  Very well done if a bit cheesy in places.)

The visual furniture on the screen is very SGI-like, but when I was first looking at the photo I thought there was something Smalltalk-like about the minimalism of the other windows.

For some reason, your link is damaged?  The ")" seems to be outside the link.

Questionable behaviour of the SMF forum software... somebody else's problem (which TBH is my feeling about Wp ATM: they've started rejecting redirect pages which aren't created with the correct paperwork attached).
