(two horizontal dial programs, one is simple tabular output, the other is a cleaner tabular output AND graphics as was done in the 60s)
While this is a free open source system, and is a command line system, it runs on Windows XP and Windows Vista win64. To make the system easier to use, I provide a batch file which brings up the horizontal dial source program, you exit that, then the Algol system runs the program.
NOTE: The Algol system is open license and the downloadable executable from the Algol Genie author's is in a “tgz” form but downloads as a “.tar” file, so you must change the “.tar” suffix back to “.tgz” because Winzip will otherwise get very upset. The system is open source, so my zip file has everything you will need. The Illustrating Shadows web site zip file is normal zip format.
With the exception of download changing the executable suffix (see above), it worked first time, has a manual, and works. I have, as always, placed into my notes the command line to compile, and my notes also have a batch file to do it all, and it begins with editing the program, then compiling, then linking, then running, then viewing the output.
This is part of my battle to bring back the legacy languages so diallists can have fun with their journey into gnomonics. I learned Algol for the Elliott 803 computer at college, after which I learned the IBM 1401 system (Autocoder and SPS) then the IBM 360 system.
Download this file which has my notes, the source program, the Algol system and documentation, all open license.
download Programming Shadows, it is free, and has many hints to get you up to speed on many languages
