Your Help Needed
If you know ALGOL W, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in ALGOL W.

Algol W is a successor to Algol 60 closely based on A Contribution to the Development of ALGOL by Niklaus Wirth and C. A. R. Hoare. It includes dynamically allocated records, string handling, complex numbers and a standard I/O system. A copy of the Algol W Language Description can be found on Karl Kleine's Historic Documents in Computer Science page. Dabcanboulet's Algol W @ Everything2 page contains an excellent history and tutorial.

aw2c is a new compiler for the Algol W language. It is a complete implementation of the language described in the Algol W Language Description, June 1972. aw2c should be able to compile code intended for the OS/360 Algol W compilers with little or no modification. See the aw2c manual for more details.

aw2c correctly compiles Tony Marsland's computer chess player Awit and Hendrik Boom's A68H Algol 68 compiler.
