“Bournegol the ALGOL-like dialect of C that Steve Bourne used to write the original Bourne shell”
(from Marc Lehmann’s “Bournegol Page”)
I immediately asked myself: what could Bournegol look like? Well, it’s not that easy to find the original Bourne Shell sourcecode, so, after some googling, I thought I might put an example of Bournegol on my homepage, so other people have the chance to find about “Bournegol” without the tedious search.
(many years later I found this paper, A Partial Tour Through the UNIX Shell, which makes for very nice reading).
“I recently learned the Bourne shell scripting syntax is based off Algol 60.”
