stores variables, strings and data structures in a single garbage-collected heap.
language, regular expression syntax, and some other languages, alternation is a binary infix operator on patterns, notated "|".
The JBOL modules library for the jq language contains a full implementation for the
pattern matching sublanguage.
Common backronyms of "

itself has no structured programming features, a
preprocessor called Snostorm was designed and implemented during the 1970s by Fred G. Swartz for use under the Michigan Terminal System (MTS) at the University of Michigan. Snostorm was used at the eight to fifteen sites that ran MTS. It was also available at University College London (UCL) between 1982 and 1984.
Program languages available for GCOS included GCOS Algol, Algol-68, COBOL,
, JOVIAL, APL, FORTRAN 68, CORAL 66, FORTRAN 77, and B.
Most of the 12 difficulty levels are named after programming languages. From lowest to highest: RPG, COBOL, BASIC, FORTRAN,
, PL1, PASCAL, ALGOL, ASSEMBLY, OS, JCL, USER.
rivals APL for its distinctiveness in format and programming style, both being radically unlike more "standard" procedural languages such as BASIC, Fortran, or C.
COMIT was the first string processing language (compare
, TRAC, and Perl), developed on the IBM 700/7000 series computers by Dr. Victor Yngve and collaborators at MIT from 1957 to 1965. Yngve created the language for supporting computerized research in the field of linguistics, and more specifically, the area of machine translation for natural language processing. The creation of COMIT led to the creation of
One of the designers of
, Ralph Griswold, designed successors to SNOBOL4 called SL5 and Icon, which combined the backtracking of SNOBOL4 pattern matching with more standard ALGOL-like structuring, as well as adding some features of their own.
The language was influenced by ALGOL 60 and is an early example of a pattern matching language for manipulation of strings (a more popular example from the same time is
was quite widely taught in larger US universities in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was widely used in the 1970s and 1980s as a text manipulation language in the humanities.
The term "backtrack" was coined by American mathematician D. H. Lehmer in the 1950s. The pioneer string-processing language
(1962) may have been the first to provide a built-in general backtracking facility.
("StriNg Oriented and symBOlic Language") is a computer programming language developed between 1962 and 1967 at AT&T Bell Laboratories by David J. Farber, Ralph E. Griswold and Ivan P. Polonsky.
XSLT is influenced by functional languages, and by text-based pattern matching languages like
and AWK. Its most direct predecessor is DSSSL, which did for SGML what XSLT does for XML.
pattern can be very simple or extremely complex. A simple pattern is just a text string (e.g. "ABCD"), but a complex pattern may be a large structure describing, for example, the complete grammar of a computer language. It is possible to implement a language interpreter in
almost directly from a Backus–Naur form expression of it, with few changes. Creating a macro assembler and an interpreter for a completely theoretical piece of hardware could take as little as a few hundred lines, with a new instruction being added with a single line.
SPITBOL (Speedy Implementation of
) is a compiled implementation of the SNOBOL4 programming language. Originally targeted for the IBM System/360 and System/370 family of computers, it has now been ported to most major microprocessors including the SPARC. It was created by Robert Dewar and Ken Belcher, who were then at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Ralph E. Griswold (May 19, 1934, |Modesto, CA – October 4, 2006, Tucson, AZ) was a computer scientist known for his research into high-level programming languages and symbolic computation. His language credits include the string processing language
, SL5, and Icon.
