This paper describes a compiler system that will translate FORTRAN IV programs into programs that will run on the Wang 520600 programmable calculator. The system includes an option to generate the Wang programs on punched cards that can be input into the 520 or 600 via a mark-sense card reader. The compiler was written in FORTRAN IV for the IBM 370195 computer. Only a few minor changes are necessary to run the system on a different computer. This paper includes a detailed description on the types of optimization used to yield an effective FORTRAN translation onto a relatively small computer i.e., desk calculator.
