Hi Tigerofdarkness and welcome to Rosetta code.
Just a short note that on talk pages please "sign your addition" by adding your signature at the end. The signature is the appearance of these characters --~~~~ which will then be turned into your contact details and date - Like this for me: --Paddy3118 (talk) 06:21, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks Paddy and thanks for showing me how to do the signature! --Tigerofdarkness (talk) 18:55, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Hello! Thanks for the Algol W solution for the Lexical Analyzer task! Algol W brings back lots of memories. After a Fortran course I had, it (Algol W) was used in a Data Structures course I had in college. It is interesting looking at the progression of Wirth's languages - Algol W, Pascal, Modula-2, Oberon. Have you used any of his other languages?
- Hi Ed, you're welcome. I hope to try the other Compiler tasks in due course. I confess to being more an Algol 68 fan, but I read about Algol W a while ago and was struck by how modern it looks in many ways - the string handling being a notable exception. This lead to my interest in it. I've also dabbled with Pascal. --Tigerofdarkness (talk) 13:18, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
My real question is I think a new compiler task needs to be added to provide a preprocessor to the sample language. I do not want to randomly add something like that without some backing to do so. One other person asked a similar question on your task so I figured maybe you might say it is worth doing. If so, given you created that task, I would create mine. I knew about the signature but it is easy to post without thinking about. It should be automatic. --Jwells1213 (talk) 14:34, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
