There is an implementation of the original object oriented programming language
SIMULA for MAC/MPW. It runs on any Mac (Plus, SE II etc) that runs MPW.
This imples 2 MByte and a hard disc.

The current release (4.07) of Simula for the MAC/MPW is Public domain. It comes
with a Hypercard reference stack for both the language and the interface to
the Toolbox. The quickest way to get hold it is to download it from where you find it in under directory:
-rw-r--r-- 1 19 ftp 251008 May 23 1989 lund_simula_4pt07.sit_bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 19 ftp 156800 May 23 1989
-rw-r--r-- 1 19 ftp 95360 May 23 1989 sinterfaces.sit_bin

login as "anonymous" under ftp to download the files.

If you have any problems with this I will be happy to send you a diskette.

SIMULA is a standardized language. The Swedish Standard (SS 63 61 14) should
be possible to get trough ANSI. The Lund Simula implementaion, which follows
the standard, has been operational since 1981 and ported to various mini
computers and workstations. For Unix based machines the system includes an
interactive, source level debugger.
