The present report is an elaboration of the ALGOL 60 report [2]. I t describes the programming language ALGOL 6 0 , which is defined in [2], in a more pedagogical, and therefore less precise, way than in the ALGOL report. The main vehicle for the description of ALGOL in the present report is the discussion of a series of simple ALGOL programs in which the number of different ALGOL structures and their complexity increase gradually. Apart from the difference in presentation, the language… Expand
