SPITBOL 360 Now Available

The original implementation of SPITBOL, for the IBM 360, has been available in source form under the GPL license since 2001, from www.snobol4.com/spitbol360.

The SPITBOL Project has just republished these files in a GIT repository: github.com/spitbol/360

With the publication of this version, the source for implementations of SPITBOL produced over a period of over forty years, for the IBM/360 mainframe, MS-DOS for 8088 through Pentium chips, unix for i386, and unix and osx for x64 (amd64), are all now available from github.com/spitbol.

    I have fond memories of using Snobol on MTS at the University of Michigan in the 1970s. This was on a 360, later upgraded to a 370 then an Amdahl. I wrote my code on a 3270 but saved it all on cards, as online storage cost too much. Sadly, I left my box of Snobol cards at the Computing Center too long after the end of the semester and they tossed it out.
