A subset of ALGOL 68 allowing simpler compilation, intended mainly for numerical computation. It was rewritten in BLISS for the PDP-11, and later in Pascal. It is available as shareware from Charles Lindsey [email protected]
Version 2.3 runs on Sun-3 under SunOS 4.x and Atari under GEMDOS (or potentially other computers supported by the Amsterdam Compiler Kit).

- Algol 68rs
algol 68rs language An extension of ALGOL 68 supporting function closures by the Royal Signals Radar Establishment, Malvern UK. It has been ported to Multics and VAX/VMS. (1995-05-04)
- Algol c
algol c language 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. (1994-11-24)
- 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].
