    Well apparantly Napolean's troops used to buy shawls while on service in Egypt.A fashion craze soon started for these shawls.

    When the shawls began to be produced in Europe, they were made on automated, perforated-paper-control looms.

    An American chap, named Hermin Hollerith, came up with an idea to automate calculation by use of punch cards.His idea was taken from the shawl producing process.

    This method ws used to control ENIAC, the first electronic computer.
