Beyond its historical importance, BCPL had intrinsic merits. In retrospect, what particularly impresses, is the elegant simplicity of its compiler.

This is well documented in the book BCPL: the language and its compiler by Martin Richards and Colin Whitby-Strevens (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ). The modern version of BCPL is described in the book by Richards and Colin Whitby-Strevens, "BCPL--the language and its compiler," ISBNCambridge University Press, This now seems to be out of print, although until recently some of the online book stores listed it.

A compiler is a computer program that translates computer code written in one programming language (the source language) into another language (the target language).

The name compiler is primarily used for programs that translate source code from a high-level programming language to a lower level language (e.g., assembly language, object code, or machine code) to create an executable program.

This book is essential reading for the BCPL programmer. It is published by Cambridge University Press at a reasonable price in paperback. Martin Richards originally designed BCPL in Cambridge in This book will henceforth be referred to as "the BCPL book".File Size: KB.

Bcpl: The Language and Its Compiler by Martin Richards My rating: 4 of 5 stars. Published inI bought this when I saw it mentioned in an article on compilers, and someone mentioned this as being a model of what a book about a computer language should be.

BCPL was a response to difficulties with its predecessor CPL, created during the early s; Richards created BCPL by "removing those features of the full language which make compilation difficult". The first compiler implementation, for the IBM under CTSS, was written while Richards was visiting Project MAC at MIT in the spring of BCPL (for "Basic CPL", although originally "Bootstrap CPL") was a much simpler language based on CPL intended primarily as a systems programming language, particularly for writing compilers; it was first implemented inprior to CPL's first implementation.

BCPL then led, via B, to the popular and influential C programming ed by: Christopher Strachey et al. Title: BCPL Reference Manual Author: Martin Richards Keywords: BCPL Created Date: 7/16/ PMFile Size: 1MB.

It was named "C" because its features were derived from an earlier language called "B", which according to Ken Thompson was a stripped-down version of the BCPL programming origin of C Subcategory: Reference Software.

Edwards S The Challenges of Hardware Synthesis from C-Like Languages Proceedings of the conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe - Volume 1, (). BCPL is described in the book `BCPL: The Language and Its Compiler' by Martin Richards and Colin Whitby-Strevens, which also includes the full source code for a portable compiler for BCPL.

The book is interesting not just from the point of view of the language, but also because it provides a view of compiler technology and approaches to program. The first BCPL compiler was written in AED.

BCPL was used to implement the TRIPOS operating system, which was subsequently reincarnated as AmigaDOS. ["BCPL - The Language and its Compiler", Martin Richards & Colin Whitby-Stevens, Cambridge U Press ].

The holy writ of BCPL is the book BCPL: The Language and its Compiler by Martin Richards and Colin Whitby-Strevens. BCPL was intended as a sort of general-purpose systems programming language, designed by taking the general syntax and features of CPL and stripping out the datatypes and sophistication.

In the first chapter, the author explains. BCPL is a simple typeless language that was designed in by Martin Richards and implemented for the first time at MIT in the Spring of A machine independent interpretive implementation of BCPL is available free of charge for private and academic purposes. It was a small tour de force: a full B compiler, written in its own language and generating code for a bit mainframe, that ran on an bit machine with 4K words of user address space.

This project was possible only because of the simplicity of the B language and its run-time system. [] in [.languages]_z (VMS machine). The kit is based on the INTCODE bootstrap technique explained in the book BCPL: The language and its implementation, Richards and another (not certain of title, book's at home).

Remember, it's an interpretive system for bootstrapping purposes, so. README: bcpl This is a port to V7/x86 of an old BCPL compiler from the Tripos Research Group at Cambridge University. The compiler available here is very close to that featured in the book: BCPL -- the language and its compiler by Martin Richards and Colin Whitby-Stevens (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ).

The language BCPL1 (Basic CPL) was originally de-veloped as a compiler writing tool and as its name suggests it is closely related to CPL2,3 (Combined Programming Language) which was jointly developed at Cambridge and London Universities. BCPL adopted much of File Size: 2MB.

Title: Author: Administrator Created Date. BCPL (from Basic/Bootstrap Combined Programming Language) is a programming language created by Martin Richards of the University of Cambridge in (first implementation followed in ).

BCPL was influenced by an earlier CPL, but stripped of its most complicated parts. but ornamented it by placing its type keywords at the start of declarations.

Not every difference between the BCPL language documented in Richards’s book [Richards 79] and B was deliberate; we started from an earlier version of BCPL [Richards 67].
