The first Multics PL/I parser was for the EPL compiler,
done in 1966 or so by Bob Morris in TMG. See
There were two PL/I compiler generations for Multics after that, the
Version 1 and Version 2 compilers. Freiburghouse led the groups that
did these, but I do not remember whether they used the same parser.
You could ask Bob.
I had the impression, as an occasional user of IBM PL/I F and the IBM
PL/I Checkout compiler that followed it in the early 1970s, that the
parsers for these compilers were different, based on the kind of
errors they discovered.
