Its amazing to hear something about pl/0 in the U.S. Niklaus Wirth wrote
a book "Compilerbau" in German (=compiler construction) for teaching
a course on compiler construction at ETH Zuerich, Switzerland. I feel
the book you mentioned is some English translation of his book and it
covers a stepwise development of pl/0 compiler, a tiny small subset of
Pascal. I have no knowledge of an existing English translation but
the German edition is from Teubner Stuttgart, Germany, 1977.
        By the way, Wirth wrote a new and revised edition using Modula-2 for
implementing the pl/0-compiler.

        Are you experimenting with pl/0 or do you know if this book is used
as a textbook somewhere? I would be glad to hear something.
