Algol 68 Genie
A fairly fully featured Algol 68 interpreter

Algol68G (Algol 68 Genie) is an Algol 68 implementation. Its front-end parses an entire Algol 68 source program. If parsing is successful, the syntax tree (that serves as an intermediate program representation) is interpreted by Algol68G's back-end. The interpreter performs many runtime checks.
