SNOBOL (StriNg Oriented and symBOlic Language) is a programming language for text manipulation. It was developed in the 1960s at Bell Telephone Laboratories. The language provides powerful pattern matching to work with strings of characters, making it especially useful for processing natural language texts and database management. SNOBOL's development has influenced other languages with an emphasis on string handling, such as AWK, Perl, and Python.
