Algol W

Explanation

ALGOL W is a programming language. It was based on a proposal for ALGOL X by Niklaus Wirth and C. A. R. Hoare as a successor to ALGOL 60 in IFIP Working Group 2.1. When the committee decided that the proposal was not a sufficient advance over ALGOL 60, the proposal was published as A contribution to the development of ALGOL. After making small modifications to the language Wirth supervised a high quality implementation for the IBM/360 at Stanford University that was widely distributed.

  • award: - Turing Award (For developing a sequence of innovative computer languages, EULER, ALGOL-W, MODULA and PASCAL.), received by Niklaus Wirth
