What is stropping?[edit]

Would a Algol68 parser complain about any of the following two programs?

mode xint = int;
xint sum sq:=0;
for i while
  sum sq≠70×70
do
  sum sq+:=i↑2
od 
mode xint = int;
xint sum sq:=0;
for i while
  sum sq≠70×70
do
  sum sq+:=i↑2
od

What is stropping?
A hardware representation for the program text. The reply to the question "how do I type begin on my ASR-33".
Would an ALGOL 68 parser complain about these two programs
  • The first program wouldn't compile, "begin" is not the same as "begin". If it were prefixed by ".pr res .pr" then "begin" would be a valid spelling of "begin", but "xint" would still not be a correct spelling of "xint".
  • The second program would be valid if you had a system that let you type bold text (and a compiler that could read bold text). Most people didn't.
