SNOBOL/SPITBOL Patterns for Python
Portable SNOBOL/SPITBOL Patterns for Python.
Patterns can be composed with other Patterns and strings using the ‘+’ and ‘|’ operators.
Based on a C-language translation of the GNU Ada (GNAT) package by the original creator of SPITBOL.
Type “pydoc spipat” for documentation.
In theory, the package is system independent, given a C99 compiler, but has never been compiled with anything but gcc. MINGW should work, if that’s how Python was built.
