THE LESSER-KNOWN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES #13: SLOBOL SLOBOL is best known for the speed, or lack of it, of its compiler. Although many compilers allow you to take a coffee break while they compile, SLOBOL compilers allow you to travel to Bolivia to pick the coffee. Forty-three programmers are known to have died of boredom sitting at their terminals while waiting for a SLOBOL program to compile. Weary SLOBOL programmers often turn to a related (but infinitely faster) language, COCAINE.

This site is for my SlackBuilds, which build Slackware Linux packages, that I don't have on slackbuilds.org. There are a few oddities here, mostly compiling from GIT or SVN repos. Hopefully, you will find some of them useful.
