  • A COBOL compiler design is presented which is compact enough to permit rapid, one-pass compilation of a large subset of COBOL on a moderately large computer. Versions of the same compiler for smaller machines require only two working tapes plus a compiler tape. The methods given are largely applicable to the construction of ALGOL compilers.
