I don't believe that. Decades ago I was using languages like Algol,
Lisp, Pop-2, in all of which pattern matching was entirely absent

I'm reminded of Susan's classroom. I think it's in "The Thief of Time."
The quote goes something like this:
she hadn't told the children algebra was hard,
so they never found out.
