Story in the Australian, 1975.
The initial implementation of the OzNAKI educational robotics languages was on the La Trobe University PDP-10 "mainframe". The very first implementations were in Algol-60, augmented by machine code to output ASCII control codes to the ZONKY (originally called Honky) robot. Together with research student Rhys Francis a scheme of developing portable code was developed in terms of macros, allowing subsequent implementations to be tested on a DEC-10 and produce machine code for a range of microprocessors, including the Intel 8080, Mototola 6800, SC/MP, and 6502 ( for the Apple ][ ). This system was described in an article published in the IEEE Computer
Using a conventional macro-assembler as a multi-target cross-assembler and cross-compiler, the authors developed portable algorithmic code for OZNAKI,
Other engineering aspects of OzNAKI are described here
Three key papers on the educational aspects of OZNAKI are downloadable as PDFs
