S/SL is used here at Bell-Northern Research. In fact it was
partially funded by BNR. I used it at Queen's University when I
took a compiler course from Jim Cordy (one of the designers).
S/SL is simple, elegant, and very easy to develop and maintain.
I was quite impressed. Unfortunately all the reference material
I have on S/SL is proprietary. (It's so simple however, that
little is required)
The reference you want is:
Cordy, J.R. and Holt, R.C.  Specification of S/SL:
Syntax/Semantic Language, Computer Systems Research Institute,
University of Toronto.
The address is:
CSRI, University of Toronto
Sanford Fleming Building,
10 King's College,
