PL/I was my favorite mainframe programming language my last two
an undergrad. I liked how it incorporated ideas from FORTRAN,
COBOL. My student job was to enhance a PL/I package for a History
What language were the PL/I compilers written in?
From AFIPS '69 (Fall):
"The Multics compiler is the only PL/1 compiler
written in PL/1 [...]"
HOPL I has a talk on the early history of PL/1 (born as NPL) but nothing
on the question.
Wikipedia claims that IBM is still developing a PL/I compiler, which I
suppose I have no reason to disbelieve, but I'm very curious as to who
is using it and for what purpose.
