ELLA is a hardware design language from DRA Malvern. Implemented in ALGOL 68RS - "ELLA 2000: A Language for Electronic System Design", J.D. Morison and A.S. Clarke, McGraw-Hill 1993.

algol68toc is derived from a project to translate ELLA into C, hence ELLA ALGOL 68 is a cut down verion of ALGOL 68RS where elements not required for the ELLA translation were not ported.

Sample[edit]

Notes: ELLA Algol68 (in the form on Algol68toC) is missing the formatted transput (input/output), hence the following code sample uses print and not printf. It also requires ALGOL 68 RS's PROGRAM, USE and FINISH formalities.

PROGRAM helloworld CONTEXT VOID
USE standard    
BEGIN      
  print(("Hello, world!", new line))      
END
FINISH
