free version of the programming language APL
GNU APL is an interpreter for APL as described in ISO standard 13751, aka. "Programming Language APL, Extended".
This free version of the programming language APL has already implemented the latest and greatest features (nested arrays and related functions, complex numbers, shared variables) and is intended to be a full implementation of the standard.
GNU APL has a predefined keyboard layout in order to produce APL characters when the "Alt" key is held down. The layout can be customized by the program xmodmap and a new keyboard mapping table like "apl.xmodmap" provided in source:
Text files beginning with #!apl run the interpreter as a shell with the subsequent lines as input.
