A variant of ALGOL 60 developed by Clive Feather of Cambridge University ca. 1981. ALGOL C added structures and exception handling. It was designed for beginners and students.
- Algol d
algol d language [“A Proposal for Definitions in ALGOL”, B.A. Galler et al, CACM 10:204-219, 1967].
- Algol n
algol n language A successor to ALGOL 60 proposed by Yoneda. (1994-11-24)
- Algol w
algol w language A derivative of ALGOL 60. It introduced double precision, complex numbers, bit strings and dynamic data structures. It is parsed entirely by operator precedence and used the call-by-value-result calling convention. [“A Contribution to the Development of Algol”, N. Wirth, CACM 9(6):413-431, June 1966]. [“ALGOL W Implementation”, H. Bauer et al, TR CS98, […]
- Algol x
algol x language A proposed successor to ALGOL 60, a “short-term solution to existing difficulties”. Three designs were proposed, by Wirth, Seegmuller and van Wijngaarden. [Sammet 1969, p. 194]. (1995-05-07)
