In answer to Keith Handley's question, SNOBOL4 is NO LONGER available
for the VAX (neither VMS nor Unix).

I suggest the Icon programming language. It has similar powerful
features, and it is in the public domain. It can be ordered for the
costs of the tape from the Icon Project, University of Arizona. Contact
Ralph Griswold, RALPH@cs.arizona.edu.

SNOBOL4 and the faster SPITBOL are available for MS-DOS, for the
Macintosh, and in 386 versions. These are not public domain. Contact
Catspaw, Inc., P.O. Box 1123, Salida, CO 81201.

I would be glad to offer additional information to anyone who is
