    Despite the ubiquity of J oriented text editors and script handling tools I store all my J code, test cases, and documentation in a coding tool I developed called JOD. JOD is a refactoring tool. It lets you easily reuse J words in arbitrary contexts without error prone cut-and-pasting or rampant over-inclusion. I use JOD from three J environments, jconsole, JHS, and JQT. JOD is one of many J addons. It can be installed with the J pacman utility. JOD has been entirely programmed in J and is a good example of using J to build larger systems. JOD source code is on Github. See The JOD Page for more about JOD.
