SOAP compiler written by Conway and Knuth at Case Institute

"Our first effort was then to write a program named "Compiler II-SOAP II." This program worked very well, turned out nice "tight" coding, and included IT as a subset language. The bulk of the flow charting, planning, and coding for Compiler II-SOAP II was done by two of my undergraduate students, Mr. Lynch, a sophomore, and Mr. Knuth, a freshman."
