ALGOL C(ID:6191/alg034)

ALGOL 60 with extensions to permit user defined extensions 

alternate simple view
Country: United States
Designed 1966
Genus: True ALGOL60s
Sammet category: Numerical Scientific

Theoretical sub-language of ALGOL 60 with extensions to permits extensions, inspired partly by MAD and SDC's Fortran 63, created by Perlis and Geller while at the MC on sabbatical.

The Galler and Perlis paper is a milestone in the establishment of a logic of extension - a large number of possibilities are still not taken up by contemporary languages.
