 the skinny on plm

PL/M that was marketed by Digital Research is a dialect of PL/1.  It is
not directly derived from PL/1, but is akin to it
because the original basis for the language was derived from
XPL/360 and XPL/370--a language system that was designed for
compiler-writing, prior to Unix and the Yacc/Bison monopoly.

If you download a shareware program called plm2c, you will
note that the 'keywords' and tokens match XPL's.

It was expanded to include decimal (bcd) and scientific
functions.

Intel & Digital may have released dual-versions of the language
since it may have been considered a "public-domain" issue.
