A is for Algol

A is for Algol, APL, and ADA.
B brings back BASIC; C is self-explanatory.
Eiffel, Prolog and yacc made guest appearances, with minor discussion of whether yacc is a language or just the name of a tool (and if it's just a tool, what do you call the syntax for specifying the syntax of a language?)
After parsing the alphabet, we found ourselves lacking languages that begin with G, N or Q. Vass decided that nroff didn't count, because it's a tool rather than a language. First time all day we were at a loss for words or tokens.
