Set-based algorithmic language

Country: United States
Designed 1969
Published: 1969
Genus: Generalised programming
Sammet category: Specialised Languages

Set-based algorithmic language, designed to make the use of V-graphs in programming straightforward.

Described as being a system of which L6 is a simplest case.

Lumped with SETL and MADCAP in MIT review

Also significant in that it was the first system to make use of Earley's own parser, which went on to become a highly important feature of many compilers
