A. B. Tucker produced a book "Programming Languages" (McGraw-Hill, 1977)
covering in detail ALGOL, FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/I, RPG, and SNOBOL.


Example programs with timings are given for each language.


Timings for PL/I under the IBM compilers need to be taken wih a grain of salt,
for Tucker omitted to specify OPTIONS (REORDER) in all the procedures --
largely negating the effects of specifying optimisation.
