CPL was a language designed by Christopher Strachey, as
a large language with a scope similar to PL/I.  The acronym
CPL was popularly interpreted as Chrisopher's Private Language.    (03)

BCPL (Basic CPL) was a very small language design as an
implementation language for CPL, and B was a follow-on
to BCPL.    (04)

I heard something similar to what Randall said, and the
major question of the day was whether the follow-on to C
would be P or D.    (05)
