[opensuse] SPITBOL linux
Hello All,

This is my first posting to the list. I would like to announce. That a port of R.B.K Dewar's, Macro Spitbol, is now available for linux. It is released and maintained by Dave Shields. Below is a copy of his original announcement to the Spitbol mail list. And a link to the download site.

I have compiled it onto both OpenSuse 64 & 32bit systems. And I made a small correction to the makefile to produce a makefile that works with all versions of 12.1 And I have a tgz of it if anybody would like.

Does this list take attachments? If it does I could upload a nifty example database program that I wrote years ago. It does not use tables, arrays, or lists. It is extremely fast, very small (about one page) and is very difficult to produce in a structured language. Snobol4 language is both unstructured and structured.
Friendly regards,

SPITBOL/Linux v3.8.1, the first implementation of SPITBOL for LInux, and the first release of Macro SPITBOL in over a decade, is now available.

Mark Emmer maintained Macro SPITBOL for well over two decades, with great care and on his own time, and his own dime.

I know all in the SNOBOL/SPITBOL community appreciate his contributions.

Though he will continue with the project, I will be the maintainer going forward.

The project is be hosted at

We will use wikis, issue trackers and such other tools as are provided by Github.

There will be no mail lists. We will use twitter instead, username @spitbol.

thanks, dave
