A case study in rapid prototyping of a new language processor is described. A quick version of the system was developed in SNOBOL4, revised in SNOBOL4, and then rewritten in Pascal. This led to an operational system very early in the development cycle where operational characteristics of the system could be tested easily. The goals of this experiment as well as some of the results are described.
