GeneralRe: The APL Progamming Language Source Code PinmemberClifford Nelson10-Oct-12 15:42 
An amazing language at the time. I remember first learning about APL. At the time I was using FORTRAN. It took a long time for FORTRAN to finally get matrix capability even though it was intended for Scientific Programming. Interestingly enough it handled complex numbers, but did not evolve further in its ability to support scientific calculations. Later versions of FORTRAN added the structual style we pretty much use today, and then much improved IO. Too bad...

It was said that a programmer could create a line of code in APL that would take another programmer days to decypher. Also was helpful to have a special keyboard to work with APL due to all the special characters.
