Abstract : This manual is a supplement to the original article (included as an appendix) A FORMAL DEFINITION OF SOL by Knuth and McNeley. The version of SOL described here, known as SOL-20, was implemented by procedures written in Algol-20 and G-20 machine languages. It is the purpose of this documentation to describe in detail exact differences and changes in syntax between SOL and SOL-20. With some limitations, the full power of ALGOL-20 (the local Carnegie-Mellon University version of the international language ALGOL-60) is available for programming in SOL-20. A SOL-20 program is written using SOL-20 system procedures which implement SOL declarations, expressions, relations and statements.
