Opinion  edit

"I like APL. I like it because it has a solid fundamental data model, and then elaborates the hell out of it."
- CMcC, Tcl Chatroom, 2013-12-27
"APL is a mistake, carried through to perfection. It is the language of the future for the programming techniques of the past: it creates a new generation of coding bums."
- Edsger Dijkstra
