The Royal Radar Establishment, Malvern, England commissioned this "Introduction to the 'RS' Portable Compiler - Technical Note No. 802" which was written by S G Bond and P M Woodward.

Abstract : This paper describes the portable compiler for Algol 68 developed at RSRE by Currie and Morison. Chapter 2 defines the language extensions handled by the compiler, and the system of modular compilation as seen by the user. Chapter 3 outlines the structure of a complete system, emphasizing the design of the intermediate language produced by the compiler for input to a machine-dependent translator. Though factual, this paper is not the system documentation.
