I'm not sure about programming languages. For example
in the instruction:

IF a=1 THEN SET b = 0

"IF ... THEN ..." can hardly be {ga nai ... gi ... }.
If a=1 is false we don't want to let the computer to
set b = 0 if it pleases, which {ganai ... gi ...}
presumably would. So the "if" of programming languages,
if it can be compared to a logical connective given the
modalities involved, would have to be iff, {go ... gi ...}.
