Meaning of ATLAS AUTOCODE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

The autocode for the ferranti atlas, which may have been the first commercial computer with hardware-paged virtual memory. Whereas other autocodes were basically assembly languages, Atlas Autocode was high-level and block-structured, resembling a cross between fortran and algol 60. It had call-by value, loops, declarations, complex numbers, pointers, heap and stack storage generators, dynamic arrays, and extensible syntax.
