Tower Floor -- C Programming

Tower Floor -- C Programming

Almost completely encircling (except around the stairs) the walls of this room are large racks of scrolls. In the middle of the room a flaming monument fills the room with light. A plaque on the side of the monument reads...
In dedication to all dead computer languages Past, Present and Future.

Cobol, Fortran, Forth, Pascal, BCPL, B...

You feel humbled in the presence of this monument and if you'd had a hat you feel inclined to remove it in silent reverence.

The stone staircase behind you signed as leading up to VI Editor and down to The X window System where the X is very weirdly drawn with angled lines of different thicknesses.

The white marble circle is of course just to the right of the stairs. Something about its position however seems to not be right but you aren't quite sure what.

The titles on the scroll racks lining the walls are :-
