Elliott Algol

ALGOL, one of the earliest programming languages and a foundation for many others, was first proposed in the late 1950s. The Elliott ALGOL is an implementation of this language on Elliott Brothers' computers, including the Elliott 401 and other early mainframes. Like the original ALGOL, it used structured programming concepts and syntax that influenced subsequent languages such as Pascal. Initially developed by European computer scientists, its use was largely confined to Europe's academic and research communities but played a significant role in shaping how modern software is written.
