These instructions describe the SuperPascal software, define the terms and conditions for its use, and explain how you obtain the software by anonymous FTP.
The SuperPascal software (hereafter Software) is educational software written by Per Brinch Hansen (hereafter PBH). The Software consists of the Manuals, Programs, and Scripts for the programming language SuperPascal invented by PBH. The Software is stored as text in 11 files (hereafter Files). The Manuals, written by PBH, are stored as LaTeX text in 3 Files:
report.tex "The programming language SuperPascal."
user.tex "The SuperPascal user manual."
notes.tex "The SuperPascal software notes."
The Programs, written by PBH, are a SuperPascal compiler and interpreter (hereafter Compiler and Interpreter). The Programs are written in Pascal for Sun3 and Sun4 workstations running Unix. The Programs are stored as Pascal text in 6 Files:
common.p The common declarations used by the Compiler and Interpreter.
scan.p The Compiler procedure that performs lexical analysis.
parse.p The Compiler procedure that performs syntax, scope, and type analysis.
assemble.p The Compiler procedure that assembles interpreted code.
compile.p The Compiler program.
interpret.p The Interpreter program.
The Scripts are Unix shell scripts stored as text in 2 Files:
sun3.user A shell script for compilation of the Programs on a Sun3 workstation under Unix.
sun4.user A shell script for compilation of the Programs on a Sun4 workstation under Unix.

FILE TRANSFER PROCEDURE
To obtain the Software, click here. Save it in some local directory.
Split the archive into Files by typing
Your local directory should now contain the Files.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Transform the LaTeX files into PostScript files and print the Manuals. Read "The SuperPascal software notes" which explain how you compile the Programs on Sun3 and Sun4 workstations. Compile the Programs into two executable files:
sc An executable Compiler. sr An excutable Interpreter.
Then read "The programming language SuperPascal" and "The SuperPascal user manual".
