development of Algol
played an important role in establishing computer science as an academic discipline.
The Algol 68 Genie project preserves and promotes
out of educational as well as scientific-historical interest, by making available a recent checkout compiler-interpreter written from scratch by Marcel van der Veer, together with extensive documentation for both the language and this new implementation. Algol 68 Genie is free software distributed under the
GNU General Public License;
it is a fast compiler-interpreter which ranks among the most complete implementations of the language.
The distributions let you build Algol 68 Genie on Linux, FreeBSD,
Mac OS X, Solaris or Cygwin from source code.
Detailed installation instructions are in the book
