The SNOBOL programming languages introduced or popularized most of the concepts of character string processing. The original SNOBOL had just one data type: a string of characters. It could appear in a program as a literal delimited by quotation marks, or as a value assigned to a variable: PET " "MY CALICO CAT" Concatenation, a basic string operation, forms a new string from two or more strings placed end to end: MYPET • "HERE IS " PET "." concatenates the string "HERE IS ", the value in the… Expand
