From Rosetta Code

These are all of the implementations of ALGOL 68 on Rosetta Code.

ALGOL 68G is an interpreter that runs on Linux and a good way to get started with ALGOL 68.

  • Algol68G r1.18 is now available for download for RHEL and Fedora-11 from Sourceforge - Download now.

a68toc is a compiler that runs on Linux and comes with a 610-page book which teaches the language from scratch.

Recent Implementations[edit]

2002: Compiler / MMIX / NYU[edit]

In 2002 a NYU's Computer Science Ph.D. Candidate Antonio R. Nicolosi created a boot strap compiler for Algol68Nix.

2000: Interpreter / Linux&DOS / Rutgers University[edit]

Not all the exotic features are implemented. In particular there are no semaphores, formats and parallel-clauses.

1993: portable compiler / CWEB / univ-poitiers.fr[edit]

A portable Algol 68 compiler written in CWEB.
