Algol compiler with some interesting feedback

Writing some code in Algol this morning (or at least trying to). I knew it wasn’t right, but here’s what the compiler threw back at me:

a68g: syntax error: a formula etcetera is not a valid construct.

Okay. Interesting. The warning is even better:

a68g: warning: skipped superfluous semi-symbol.

I almost want to write bad programs to see what other gems the compiler will throw back at me.
