A web site has been established for material related to the XPL
programming language at:
XPL, developed in the 1970's was one of the earliest "compiler
compilers", was widely ported, and was the basis for a number of other
languages such as the PL/M family.
Since the heyday of XPL preceeded the Internet most of the material
and sources for XPL are not generally available. The page contains a
couple of links to material I could find. I would be interested in
obtaining links, etc. to other materials.
In particular, a FreeBSD port to Intel architecture was apparently done,
but the sources seem to be no longer available. Also if anyone has a
complete version of the original IBM 360 package I would be interested.
Any other XPL-related material is welcome.
