Abstract:
BCPL is a language which is readable and easy to learn, as well as admitting of an efficient compiler capable of generating efficient code. It is made self consistent and easy to define accurately by an underlying structure based on a simple idealized object machine. The treatment of data types is unusual and its allows the power and convenience of a language with dynamically varying types and yet the efficiency of FORTRAN.
