Are there any advantages APL offers over Haskell?

  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • BQN

    An APL-like programming language. Self-hosted!

    While lacking things like purity and ADTs, is there anything that APL (or BQN) can do that Haskell simply can't or would be much harder to do in? Because using unicode glyphs rather than ascii characters to produce terser source code, although cool, doesn't seem to be enough of a selling point to justify learning the language without any other advantages if you're already learning something like Haskell.

  • TablaM

    The practical relational programing language for data-oriented applications

    I'm building a language that is more on the relational side but has some ideas from array languages, and that(both things) change almost everything.

  • type-system-j

    adds an optional type system to J language

    A user typing system for J that is used for type coercion, and potentially increased polymorphism, rather than just harassing programmer with errors:
