Item Description
the first extensive treatment of the problems of implementing Algol 60... the first section of the book deals in general terms with the automatic translation of programs written in Algol 60 into a form suitable for use by computers, and includes a detailed technical survey of the various published methods of implementing Algol 60.

The main part of the book is a detailed description of an Algol 60 Compiler developed originally for the English Electric KDF9 Computer. Every attempt has been made to give the description in a machine-independent form... (from the jacket flap).
