Snobol4 is a pattern matching language originally created in the 60s.

It is unstructured (it uses GOTOs instead of theings like if/then/else or loops) and it provides a very rich pattern matching language. The source for a Unix (and windows) compatible copy of snobol is available from Because the current sourcess appear to be on someone's home machine, I'm providing a local copy of the snobol4 sources.

Reaching Me

You can reach me (Stephan Samuel) via email at . I don't often use AIM or MSN, so don't bother asking.

I have both a Personal web site and a political web site. They're both really personal sites, but the latter is more directly oriented to my Green Party political work. Last changed: $Date: 2004/02/20 02:16:00 $ GMT
