For SNOBOL with syntactic sugar

Andrew Koenig of AT&T Bell Laboratories.  1983

SNOBOL variant with advanced control structures

Provides a preprocessor to the SNOBOL4 programming language, modelled on RATFOR and EFL.

Like EFL, and unlike Ratfor, Snocone is a self-contained programming language, rather than a proper superset of SNOBOL4. Like Ratfor, and unlike EFL, the Snocone translator makes no attempt to produce SNOBOL4 output that is easy for humans to understand.
