TMG (from transmogrifier) is an early compiler-compiler introduced by Robert McClure in the mid-1960s. Later it was ported and further developed by Doug McIlroy of Bell Labs to work on microcomputers PDP-7 and PDP-11 under the UNIX operating system. McIlroy's dialect of TMG (the Unix TMG) was included into the UNIX operating system from Version 2 to Version 6. It was the first high-level programming language running on UNIX.
TMG was used to implement:
- EPL (Early PL/I) on Multics operating system
- B programming language by Ken Thompson
- B (via Unix TMG)
- TROL (Translation-Oriented Language) of Donald Knuth
There are two ways to run Unix TMG on modern computers:
- by using a PDP-11 emulator with the original Unix V6 image
- by running a modern port of Unix TMG
