Are you being funny? I can't tell. You need to put one of your silly
funny faces. I think that you mean Algol.

I thought it was a cool language. I never had an Algol compiler, but I
liked how the language appeared to work, when I saw an algol variable
time-step integrator (Bulirsch-Stoer) program in a math journal
publication. It looks like Pascal. I translated it to Pascal and then
again to Fortran ten years ago. I still use the routine occassionally.
