The subject says almost all : in 1967/68, I wrote in Grenoble, France,
with a colleague in the University Computer science department, an
Algol 60 compiler for the IBM 1130 computer. This compiler was
distributed and used in many places.

Now, another colleague in Grenoble is collecting in a museum old but
working computers and computer hardware (card punchers, sorters,
analog computers, paper tape punchers and readers, etc.). He managed
to get a complete IBM 1130, which works. However, he could not manage
to find a copy of my Algol 60 compiler, and for myself, I left it in
Grenoble when I came to Montreal, then Nice.

The question is whether anybody reading this list could find somewhere
the two card decks or the removable disk cartridge containing this
compiler. Even a copy of the documentation could be useful.

Since I'm not a frequent reader of Usenet groups, please write me to
the address mentioned after my signature. If you have any idea of
another group where this message could be posted, please forward it.
