BCPL (Basic Combined Programming Language) is a procedural, imperative, and structured computer programming language designed by Martin Richards of the University of Cambridge in 1966.

It was designed so that small and simple compilers could be written for it; reputedly some compilers could be run in 16 kilobytes. Further, the Richards compiler, itself written in BCPL

Please find the below attachment to get the BCPL Book on BBC Micro Computer:


Use and Implementation:

BCPL is the language in which the original hello world program was written. The first MUD was also written in BCPL (MUD1).

Several operating systems were written partially or wholly in BCPL (for example, TRIPOS and the earliest versions of AmigaDOS, a part of AmigaOS).

The BCPL ROM and attendent tools were written by John Richards (brother to Martin, and who founded Richards Computer Products) and associates.
The ROM was a classic BBC Micro ROM image containing a CINTCODE interpreter, command-line interface, and a few built-in commands.

Example of BCPL:

Print factorials:


FOR I = 1 TO 5 DO
WRITEF("%N! = %I4*N", I, FACT(I))

AND FACT(N) = N = 0 -> 1, N * FACT(N - 1)
