At APL2007, I'll be announcing the release of the APEX APL compiler,
version 0.0.0, under GPL Version 2.
If you can't wait until then, you can download it for Dyalog Linux at
www.snakeisland.com.

Congratulations on your compiler.

I looked through your pages and came across this

"[This article originally appeared in the ACM SIGAPL Quote Quad, vol.
21, no.1, September 1990.]

The APL character set has contributed, more than any other facet of
the language, to its lack of acceptance in the computing community at
large. The character set is a metaproblem -- not a problem in and of
itself, but a creator of other recurring problems of hardware,
software, ergonomics, and psychology. The adoption of new, ASCII-base
dialects of APL, such as J, is suggested as one solution to the
character set problem. "

This is also the reason for why I will not be downloading your new
compiler until there will be a J version of it, something I hope will
be coming soon.

I can not use the APL character set at all.
It is too mixed up with my national characters.

What about a unicode version of APL?

Honestly, I cannot use J because it mixes with all
the characters I use... ;)

Hello,

Can we please have a little trimming of newsgroups?

Fortran's character set is a nice safe subset
of seven-bit ASCII.
