SNOBOL (and its rare cousin, SPITBOL) are that rara avis, languages meant for pure string manipulation. As SPL was (and is) used for fancy mathematical efforts with matrices, SNOBOL makes complicated handling of strings simple. With the advent of cleaner, easier scripting languages, like PERL and PYTHON, I believe that SNOBOL has fallen into sad disuse. At one time, I could write a compiler in 20 lines of SNOBOL. Now, I doubt I could put 20 lines together.

Sad to say, both Ralph and Madge are gone. ( )
