Wirth was at Stanford at the time and there is a Stanford Tech Report
that gives the grammar and usage of Algol W.

I presume everyone knows the joke; Wirth is call by name in Europe and
Call by Value in the US.

IMHO (but of course), the significant contribution of 'W is Call by
Reference and Call by Result.
