OR and AND representations[edit]

Could someone check for the corresponding symbols of OR and AND in this language, and also their respective priority? Thanks. Teuxe (talk) 14:02, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

According to Algol Compilation and Assessment (B.A. Wichmann, 1973), and following the standard notations provided in Boolean algebra (logic), it appears that only the interpretation (and) and (or) of the symbols was incorrect in the Standard Operators table. Now fixed. Teuxe (talk) 14:16, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
