The Icon Newletter appears a few times a year; issue 54 appeared in December 1997. See
http://www.cs.arizona.edu/icon/inl/inl.htm
The Icon Analyst is a small journal that appear six times yearly. See
http://www.cs.arizona.edu/icon/analyst/ia.htm
Apparently 283 technical reports have been produced about Icon; none are yet covered by this bibliography. See
http://www.cs.arizona.edu/icon/docs/docs.htm
Icon is a descendant of Snobol, and like that older language, is well-suited to pattern-matching and string-processing applications.
Icon also has some unusual programming language features, such as functions that can return multiple values or elements of infinite sequences, coroutines, and expression suspend/resume, that make it worthy of study both for programmers, and for compiler implementors (see Griswold:1986:IIP below).
Icon's Web site (see above) describes it like this: ``Icon is a high-level, general-purpose programming language with a large repertoire of features for processing data structures and character strings. Icon is an imperative, procedural language with a syntax reminiscent of C and Pascal, but with semantics at a much higher level.''
This bibliography has been constructed almost entirely from entries in other bibliographies in the TeX User Group bibliography archive at ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/tex/bib.
