[Haskell-cafe] Origins of '$'

Hello Haskell-Café:

This is a little bit random, but I was just wondering if anyone knew
where the $ low-precedence parenthesis-eliminating application operator
originated. The Haskell Report doesn't mention anything, and I can't
search for "$" on Google. So... who thought it up? Does it originate in
an earlier language, or is it uniquely Haskellish? :)
