  • Coss, R. N. review of Petrone 1962 view details Abstract: This compiler is an adaptation of ALGOL 60 for the USS 90, a computer with card input having a 5000-cell memory on magnetic drum. Some of the features of the compiler are the ALGOL statement structure, compound and conditional statements, blocks, levels of nomenclature, and procedure declarations. Limitations exist on word length, length of arithmetic expressions, and nesting capabilities. It permits omission of the multiplication sign unless the factors are two identifiers or an identifier and a number. A tracing mode is provided. For the details, none of which the article under review contains, the reader is referred to an extant manual.
