Re: Algol Front End


A full Algol-68 front end is a huge project. Several person years, it is
a large and complex language. The definitive reference is the Algol-68
revised report, published by IFIP (WG2.1). It is a difficult document,
requiring some considerable facility in reading W grammars.

An Algol-68-S subset is a more practical project, but still large.

Algol-60 is by comparison a fairly simple language (probably > C and < Pascal)
