The first electronic computers were built in the 1940s, during and after World War II, and were used mostly for cryptanalysis (code breaking) and to compute firing tables. These are numeric applications, which require CPU time but use little input or output. Already in the 1950s, after using computers for just a few years, computer designers and users realized that computers can also be used for nonnumeric applications.
