FASBOL is a compiler for SNOBOL4; the documentation will soon be found in
FASBOL.MJC[UP,DOC].  SNOBOL4 itself is documented in "The
SNOBOL4 Programming Language", 2nd ed., by Griswold, Poage,
and Polonsky, Prentice-Hall, 1971.
To run, type R FASBOL, then answer to the asterisk:
	either	<fail file>←<source file>
	or	<fail file>,<list file>←<source file>
	or	,<list file>←<source file> .
FASBOL puts the assembly language program it generates into 
<fail file> and its listing of the source code into <list file>.  
<fail file> has default extension .FAI and <list file> has 
default extension .LST; if <source file> has no extension, 
<source file>.SNO is looked up, and then <source file> itself if 
the first lookup was not successful.  FASBOL will automatically 
swap to FAIL to translate the compiled code, creating in the 
process a .REL file with the same name as <fail file>.  To
execute the program, type EX <file>,FASLIB[1,3]/LIB.
