 PLI-32.ZIP

The above PL1 compiler
a) does not produce an EXE
b) it leaves at lot to be desired
I am pleased to hear that a 'personal pl1'
is in the works.
But until it arrives, is there anything
out there that is good and cheap?

I am responsible for PLI-32.ZIP and you are correct, but a true
compiler will never produce a .EXE

The earlier DOS version produced a standard DOS object file (.OBJ)
which was fully linkable and runnable under DOS.

DOS imposes massive technical constraints however on a complex
compiler like PL/I.

I migrated the source code to Windows NT some time ago, and decided
that I would enhance the parsing a lot, for example put. get. etc.

However I have not modified the code generator or object module
builder for NT.

I said several times on this group that if I dont get any real
interest then I am not going to pursue this rather demanding and
complex development.

If nobody can be bothered to assist in serious alpha and beta testing
then I will not work on it.

People cry out for PL/I yet they cant spare the time to beta test the
rather sophisticated software that I have put out there.

I would love to resume work on the NT version of PL/I but nobody can
be bothered to spend any time so neither can I any more.
