ZMMD paragraph confusing
I have two questions about this paragraph:
By the end of 1958 the ZMMD-group had built a working ALGOL 58 compiler for the Z22. ZMMD said Zürich (ie. Rutishauser), München (ie. Bauer, Samelson), Mainz (ie. Z22), Darmstadt (ie. Bottenbruch).
- What is the ZMMD-group?
- What does the second sentence mean?
- Heinz Rutishauser, Friedrich L. Bauer, Hermann Bottenbruch, and Klaus Samelson teamed up to develop the compiler.
- ZMMD is an abbreviation for Zürich, München, Mainz, Darmstadt – for Heinz Rutishauser was professor at the ETH Zurich, Friedrich Bauer and Klaus Samelson both worked in Munich, the Z22 which they built it for stood in Mainz, and Hermann Bottenbruch was a mathematician from Darmstadt.
