Did you try contacting that particular author?  His github info
indicates it should run under Cygwin on Windows or Linux.

https://github.com/smcharg/B5500  is the one that I have used - helped a
tiny bit with identifying some issues using extended Algol code I wrote
in 1969.

The repository is private, however, and I don't see an email address for

Software, recovered by my buddy Paul Pierce (or is at least available
from his website)
