You spent your time on what?!?

In some deep part of me, hidden in a place where even psychologists for the criminally insane can't penetrate after years of study and inhuman experimental psychopharmacological drug therapy, I want to learn APL. I find its iconographic character set and powerful functions and operators intoxicating in a seriously unhealthy manner.

I've made mention of this before and have tinkered with it over the years, learning bits and pieces as I go with the wonderful patrons of comp.lang.apl giving me their excellent help.

Today, I figured out how to make gvim use the unified keyboard layout for APL along with a standard APL font called the APL385 Unicode Font. You can read my efforts here. Sadly, I don't know if any vendor APL interpreters could read those files, but at least it makes it easy for me to write it for other purposes.

End of Line.
