libsim - Utilities written in Simula
LIBSIM is a collection of mainly small utility routines in
SIMULA collected over the years at QZ and FOA in Stockholm,
Sweden. Simula contains (compared to other languages) a
fairly extensive library as part of its standard, but LIBSIM
still offers many useful additions. LIBSIM was first
offered with the Simula implementation for DEC-10, but have
since then spread to also most other implementations.
Although not part of the standard, LIBSIM can be regarded as
a `standard' library, being generaly available. In the
current version we have destilled the essential, portable
parts of the original library.
