Portable Simula Revisited


This is a new Simula System created by the Open Source Project 'Portable Simula Revisited'.
The project was initiated as a response to the lecture held by James Gosling at the 50th
anniversary of Simula in Oslo on 27th September, 2017.

This Simula System is written in Java and compiles to pure Java code with one exception;
the Goto Statement need to be corrected in the byte code, which is done automatically.

Java is constantly evolving and new releases are coming every six months.
