An abstract ALGOL 68 machine and its application in a machine independent compiler

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 34)


An intermediate language for the machine independent compilation of ALGOL 68 is described. It makes very few assumptions on the target machine but provides a strong descriptive mechanism for abstract machine objects by which they can easily be mapped on target machine objects.
