[from harvard!topaz!petsd!cjh (Chris Henrich)]

          Several people have mentioned this language in
mod.compilers, without being able to recall where they heard
of it.
          Niklaus Wirth's book, _Algorithms_+_Data_Structures_=_
Programs_, published by Prentice-Hall in 1976, is an
introductory programming book that starts from ground zero,
introduces (a dialect of) Pascal, and finishes with a chapter
in which a little language called pl/0 is defined and a
compiler for it is written.
          That book is probably out of print now, but another book
by the same author, with a similar title, has appeared
recently. The old one was quite a good textbook; I used it
recently as a resource for a good sorting algorithm.
