P-machine, said to have been an imitation of the instruction
set for the Burroughs Large System. The term was first used
in Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs, N. Wirth, P-H
1976. Byte articles on writing a Pascal Compiler in Northstar
BASIC (ca Aug 1978) also used the term. Later used in Apple
Pascal, and as the intermediate language in the UCSD P-system.
