Victor Mono

Victor Mono is an open-source monospaced font with optional semi-connected cursive italics and programming symbol ligatures.

It’s also a very, very nice typeface. I’m always excited to see something this well made, and the logic behind it’s creation rings true: I always find myself moving to another programming typeface after a short while, but I have high hopes for this one.

Dr. Drang on COBAL and reporting

Dr. Drang, on COBOL:
