(short for E
anguage) was a compiler
for an ALGOL 60
superset that provided capabilities of what would later be known as Mohols
, machine oriented high order languages
, such as interrupting a processor on a multiprocessor
system (the Burroughs large systems
were multiprocessor processor systems.)
The ESPOL single pass compiler could compile over 250 lines per second and was used to write the MCP (Master Control Program) on the Burroughs B6700.
ESPOL was superseded by NEWP.
