snocone patches

Patches to Mark Emmer's distribution of Andrew Koenig's C-like snocone (a SNOBOL with syntactic sugar) preprocssor for SNOBOL4 to run under CSNOBOL4. Due to licence restrictions, only Mark can redistribute the sources, so you'll have to pick them up from the Catspaw snocone ftp directory, and apply my diffs (easy to do, using the Unix "patch" utility).
