APL is the rebel of programming languages. It looks different; it
feels different; it behaves differently; it requires you to think
differently. It is different. Members of the data processing
community tend to have strong feelings about APL. They love it
or they hate it. People who love it, tend to make people who hate
it, hate it even more. People who hate it, tend to make people
who love it, arrogant. It's a vicious cycle.
Often, those who hate APL don't really understand it. Or, they
understand it only enough to argue its weak points. Hopefully,
this course will teach you enough about APL to love it or hate it
intelligently. You may as well be a well-informed bigot.
