Ralph Griswold 1934-05-19 -- 2006-10-06


Ralph Griswold passed away a few days ago. He was one of the early pioneers of computer science, invented SNOBOL language at the Bell Labs and Icon at University of Arizona, where he started its computer science department. Icon was and is an elegant language that supports goal-directed evaluation, high-level constructs and powerful string handling capability. As Larry Wall once put it "Icon is a cat language, and Perl is a dog language."
