Simula

Frequently asked questions about Simula

Is the language named Simula, Simula I or Simula67?
The old version from 1962 was called Simula by the authors but is now referred to as Simula I.
The versions from 1968 and 1970 were called Simula67 to distinguish them from Simula I; the number 67 was chosen because this language was originally proposed in 1967. The 1975 and 1986 versions decided to change the name back to just Simula.
Is there any connection between the Simula programming language and the Simula research laboratory?
The research laboratory was named in honour of the Simula language – otherwise, there is no connection.
