APL to CSharp Translator for Dyalog APL and APL+Win
Compiling APL is not a new idea (see Adrian's recent Vector article for more background reading) but the .Net framework just made it a lot more attractive. Here are some reasons why an APL shop might be interested:
So is this a magic bullet to save your APL application at a stroke? No, there is plenty of work to be done to make your APL code truly compiler-friendly. Fortunately it is far from rocket-science and much of it can be automated if you have a consistent coding style.
What does it cost, and how do I try it?
You need to come to one of our 2-day seminars, which will cost you £1000. For this you get the array library, and an 18-month trial use of the code-conversion. We know the code-translation works for Adrians code (see the SharpPlot version of RainPro for the evidence) and for lots of code fragments APLers have sent us to check out, but we also know that there are plenty of APL habits that could leave it very confused.
The advantage of the seminar programme is that is gives us time to fix the translator, and it gives you a clear view of its benefits and limitations. The disadvantage is that we can only take 3-4 people at a time, and we don't have the energy to run very many of these, so if you want to get your hands on the technology, please sign up as soon as you can.
