ACL - Atlas Commercial Language was a programming language devised by David Hendry bearing a superficial resemblance to COBOL. For various reasons, Atlas would have struggled with COBOL so the flavour of the language was adapted to make it word-orientated rather than character-based. Various other changes were made to the language which became a major workhorse of the Atlas Computer.

This manual is by David Hendry for the University of London Atlas Computing Centre.
