A language for quantum computing:
https://techxplore.com/news/2022-01-language-quantum.html

Language is called Twist.

I think it's time that the standards committee begin working on quantum
computer additions for Fortran. :)

They've gone a fair way down that path. Most of the rules are like

AAA is BBB
or CCC
or DDD
.... ;)

It's about the 'purity' of program code, I read in the article.
Fortran of course has had 'pure' procedures for decades now, so
we do not need any of this Twist stuff! Also, having our parallel
coarrays is completely adequate for even the most complicated many-
worlds quantum states of entangled systems.

But then again, they can always try, of course...
