Consequently, programmer's semantic
will is more preserved with APL and J,
allowing more conciseness, easy updates.
APL and J are not dead languages:
for many programming veterans, it's the king language,
APL is currently used worldwide for many management and scientific tasks.
APL and J are a little bit esoteric, for many
people, and the technical skill investment is high before the very beginning
APL has been standardized too early, and lacks with graphic system interfaces; Only recent implementations have opened drivers
with 2D & 3D graphics, easy system ressources, and bridges with other languages such as C.
My own researches and developments in APL:
|Macro - assembly languages for chunky AMD chips 2910 2903 for GSI and CUBI 7 with 128 bits macro-code||1979 & 1981|
|3D Modelling and Animation system||1981-1985|
|Neural net RBF (Radial Basis Functions) simulator||1990|
|New 3D modelling system||1999|
