Summary

An implementation of Michigan Algorithmic Decoder, and its manual.

This program is a work of reconstructive archeology, a compiler for the Michigan Algorithmic Decoder (MAD) language from 1959-1962. It first translates MAD code into C, then uses the local C compiler to make an executable binary. It includes both a complete transcription of the original MAD manual and 100dpi scans of the original.
