Commodity and Information Trading System
The internet-based system that provides pricing and trading information for the New Zealand electricity market. COMIT is available by subscription from the provider, M-co.
COMIT was the first string processing language (compare SNOBOL, TRAC, and Perl), developed on the IBM 700/7000 series computers by Dr. Victor Yngve and collaborators at MIT from 1957-1965. Yngve created the language for supporting computerized research in the field of linguistics, and more specifically, the area of machine translation for natural language processing.
