A9 interpretive programming system for the SILLIAC, Australia's ILLIAC
"A floating point interpretive scheme (called A9 because it used SILLIAC subroutines A1 - A8) was constructed in less than a week to demonstrate programming for a group of teachers. (This system attracted a large following and a compiler group was later constructed for the KDF9 to run A9 programs - 300 times faster than on SILLIAC."
