As you surmise, A68G is a completely different package; it has
the advantage that there are people around who read these groups and
are regular users of it ....
It's mostly "only" an interpreter, but it's plenty fast enough
for everything I've wanted it to do. It includes the things that most
A68 compilers of forty years ago left out [parallel processing and
formats in particular, but also a lot of compile- and run-time
checking], adds partial parametrisation [but not yet modals] as
described in "Algol Bulletin", and lots of extra library stuff, plus a
large PDF book/manual.
