Reminiscences of Whetstone ALGOL

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Brian RandellORCiD



These reminiscences centre on the implementation, by Lawford Russell and myself, of an ALGOL 60 compiler for the English Electric KDF9 Computer in the early 1960s. However details are also given of preceding work on so-called "automatic programming", and of other contemporary ALGOL compiler projects.
