It is great to see the interest in Algol68, which is also my favourite language. I was at Royal Signals and Radar Establishment (RSRE) in the UK at the time that Mike Foster, Ian Currie and Sue Bond were building compilers for the language and trying to pursuade ICL and other computer companies to offer commercial versions of them. Sadly we didn't succeed.

I did take a look at Algol 68 genie but I didn't do much with it as I have not had the time to see if it compiles with native WIndows compilers targetting x64 (I am not interested in obsolescent win32 versions or those built with *nix on Windows environments).
