I first learned Algol on a pdp10 and I'm almost certain that I later
used it on a Vax 780 in the early 80's but I've been unable to find any
references to Algol on VMS. Am I wrong or was it indeed available and
if so are there any copies of it available anywhere?
I've never heard of an ALGOL implementation for VAX/VMS or OpenVMS. Not
from DEC, et al.
Search finds no (old) references to ALGOL here in the comp.os.vms
The ALGOL Wikipedia page lists various implementations, one of which is
S-algol, which might work on an OpenVMS platform with JVM available.
Targeting one of the OpenVMS freeware archive hosts for ALGOL information...
...finds a few references to PDP-10 emulation, and potentially with ALGOL.
These with broken links, but maybe you can use filenames from those
broken links as search targets for more info, as ALGOL is your quest.
