We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Current Developments in Commercial Automatic Programming

Article by A. D’Agapeyeff (1962) in The Computer Journal, Volume 5, Issue 2, August 1962, Pages 107–111.

This paper discusses the progress made in certain aspects of commercial automatic programming, presents a progress report on the major commercial languages, and offers some hopes and expectations for the future.

The section relating to LEO states: "CLEO is the language of LEO Computers, designed for LEO III, and is almost certainly the most recent language to be specified. It is of particular interest due to its having a combined aim toward both mathematical and business purposes. Only a preliminary report on CLEO has so far been available, but this is impressive in so far as it goes. The language might be described as being akin to both FACT and ALGOL, in that there are features of the former in the file processing and of the latter in the other procedures."
