   My programs are all written in a language called SPITBOL, which is 
an advanced form of a language called SNOBOL4 developed by Bell 
Telephone Labs.
I've been developing them since about 1966 and I always refer to them 
with the metaphor "kitchen-table" programs, even though my computer has 
never been on a kitchen table -- and couldn't have been, since I don't 
have a kitchen table.
