[what was PL/Z?]
I know of PL/Z which used to be Zilog's programming language. It has a
structure like algol but is capable of doing more or less the same stuff
as K&R C. As far as I remember, it couldn't cope with floating point values,
so it was mainly used as an OS programming language.
I saw it on a Z8000 based UNIX System III box back in the mid eighties. It
was available on Zilog's Z80 based microcomputers which ran the RIOS
operating system. Too bad Microsoft used CP/M instead of RIOS as it had
loadable device drivers, a consistent API etc.
