A bit dated. But not the first language with this name. Val Schorre
created a VALGOL to test the META II compiler compiler in 1963.
I never used Meta II, but some interesting people have been interested
in it. There's a version or two on github.
"The paper itself is a wonderful gem which includes a number of
excellent examples, including the bootstrapping of Meta II in itself
(all this was done on an 8K (six bit byte) 1401!)." - Alan
