GNU MARST 2.4 -- Release information

Release date: Sep 9, 2002

GNU MARST is an Algol-to-C translator. It automatically translates
programs written in the algorithmic language Algol 60 (Level 0) into
the ANSI C programming language.

In the previous version of the package four serious bugs were fixed.
Due to these bugs in some rare cases the marst code generator made
wrong references to procedure DSA's.

See the official web page dedicated to GNU MARST at

GNU MARST 2.4 distribution file (about 390K) can be ftp'ed from
 or from some mirror GNU ftp site (see

N.B. The Modified Report on Algol 60, which contains complete
description of the language, is not included in GNU MARST because it
is an official IFIP document. However, there is IFIP's explicit
permission to use that document for any purposes (i.e. it is almost
free, only changes are not allowed). So, if someone wishes to have
got a reprint of that document (from the Computer Journal, 1976;
53 pages, PS 350K, PDF 260K, or DVI 140K, gratis :+), please contact
Andrew Makhorin .
