S-algol is an early programming language that served as a basis for the ALGOL family of languages, including Algol 68. Developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s at Stanford University, with some improvements suggested by Dartmouth College and the University of California at Berkeley, S-algol was designed to experiment with new concepts that could be incorporated into future programming languages. While not widely used today, it has had a lasting impact on computer science through its contributions to the development of subsequent ALGOL variants and by showcasing structured programming techniques and recursive procedures.
