Note that SNOBOL was, at least partly, a spin-off of Victor Yngve's 
COMIT, the first (I think) computer language practically used for string 
processing and computational linguistics-like applications. I have (very 
satisfactorily) used COMIT for several applications in the mid-60 at the 
Center for Cybernetics and Linguistic Applications of the University of 
Milan, including a small generative grammar program for Italian inspired 
from Yngve's "Little Train" work.    (02)
