         One of the sad things about this is that somewhat 'obscure'
languages like APL, PL/1, even LISP are not being transmitted to new
generations of programmers.

         Myself, I would dearly love to have all the languages available
for my VAX, including APL, LISP, and (yes) Snobol. (I'm not sure DEC ever
did a Snobol for VMS, though, I think it just ran on TOPS-10).
