CLU

The CLU language contributed many things to many other languages, but is not currently under active support. It is historically important, so it deserves to be included here.

The following code has never been executed, and probably doesn't work. It should be close to "the real thing," however. There are CLU compilers out there, but each one poses certain problems. If I get one working, I'll verify and correct the following code, and move the link to the active language list above.
