Icon is not, in this case, one of those funny little pictures you click on on your computer screen. It is a fully featured
compute programming language developed by the late Professor Ralph Griswold and his team at the University of
Arizona.

Ralph Griswold was also largely responsible for the programming language Snobol, and several other development languages.

Remember that the use of the name Icon for the programming language pre-dates the use of 'icon' for those funny
little pictures you see on your computer screen.

This book describes completely, the use of Icon for 'text-processing' in the Humanities (eg: stylistic analysis,
concordance preparation,etc.). A DVD is included containing examples.

Icon is entirely free and can be downloaded from the Icon web site at:

http://www.cs.arizona.edu/icon/

Windows users may find it preferable to download Unicon, the extended version of Icon. The Unicon home page is at:

http://unicon.sourceforge.net/

This book is available as a free download from:

http://www.cs.arizona.edu/icon/books.htm

I have successfully used Icon on Unix/Linux and Windows machines, and it is available for Macintosh.

This superb programming language deserves to be better known. Download it today! ( )
