|(language)||Michigan Algorithm Decoder - (MAD) An early programming language, based on
IAL, developed at the University of Michigan by R. Graham,
Bruce Arden, and Bernard Galler in 1959.|
MAD ran on the IBM 704, IBM 709, and IBM 7090, and was later ported to Philco, Univac and CDC computers. It was one of the first extensible languages: the user could define his own operators and data types.
Mad/1 was a later version.
