SNOBOL4




<language> A quite distinct descendant of SNOBOL, developed by Griswold et al in 1967.

SNOBOL4 is declarative with dynamic scope.

Patterns are first-class data objects that can be constructed by concatenation and alternation.

Success and failure are used for flow control.

Delayed (unevaluated) expressions can be used to implement recursion.

It has a table data type.

Strings generated at run time can be treated as programs and executed.

See also vanilla.
