Coral 66

Coral 66 is a programming language used mainly in the aerospace industry. It's an evolution of JOVIAL that became part of the NATO standardization agreements (STANAG). Featuring structured programming, it was designed for reliability and maintainability in real-time embedded systems. Coral 66 includes constructs for finding and fixing software errors early in the development lifecycle. The language has gone out of fashion with the advent of more modern languages but remains historically relevant within its original target sectors.
