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> .
