Many of the current users of Unisys/MCP/ALGOL
platform would welcome an opportunity to convert their systems to C/C++ on
UNIX or Windows running on commodity servers.
Spectrum's ALTOS©(ALGOL to C++) tool
automates this conversion process.
includes the source code processing tool itself, and multi-platform C++
run-time libraries and header files to use with converted code. Converted
systems run on UNIX or Windows platform.
ALTOS© generates efficient
C++ code. On a low-end, single - CPU Windows machine converted code executes
faster than the original ALGOL code running on Unisys's Libra 400 machine
with 4 CPUs.
The use of
Spectrum's ALTOS© conversion tool and methodology allows for an efficient, Client - controlled conversion
process. Using ALTOS allows to achieve dramatic savings in
comparison to developing a C++ program that implements the functionality of
an existing ALGOL program from scratch.
offers a variety of services related to ALGOL to C++ conversion using ALTOS©. That
includes ALTOS© technical support, expert UNIX and Windows knowledge, conversion
project management, staff augmentation and outsourcing.
