Compilation for two computers with NELIAC

By Kleber S. Masterson

This compiler was used to generate a version of itself which, running as a COUNTESS program, generated machine code for the Control Data Corporation CDC-1604 computer. This second compiler was then used to generate a version of NELIAC for the CDC-1604. All three versions of NELIAC accepted essentially identical input language.
