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:
<fail file>←<source file>
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 puts the assembly language program it
generates into <fail file>, which has default extension .FAI,
and then automatically swaps 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> .
