I've made a new repository to document efficient array programming practices, would appreciate and tips to add to the thing(can be implementation specific or general)
 
7:29 AM
@Adám It would be interesting to make this except for general mouse input
 
@Razetime I'd want support for mouse, pencil, touchscreen, touchpad,…
 
if it can support mouse it should be able to handle any raw input

@Adám We were looking at doing the cut operator in Dyalog APL and I always felt unhappy about the numeric selection of different types of cuts, so wanted to separate them out as separate operators, now that we have Unicode available. We started with Stencil as the first one, using the "picture" of a classical Gaussian blur as the symbol, to show the connection to image processing. We should revisit it and use some of that design space, now that people have played with it for a bit.
 
Agreed, J's Cut tries to do too much, but `⌺` is too limited in 3 ways:
1. Doesn't allow you to specify edge handling
2. Doesn't allow you to align neighbourhoods with the input world
3. Doesn't handle small worlds
 
8:39 AM
Yup, I believe there are already proposals to extend the right operand to deal with much of that, we've just been distracted with other things.
 
9:15 AM
@MortenKromberg Good point. 1 and 2 can be dealt with in a per-axis fashion, fitting each column of the right operand. The left argument could be used for a fill element. The most complicated issue may actually be the small-world one.

some APL symbols from the altgr layout fail to work on vim, like ¨. How do I fix that?
 
@Razetime No idea. Do you have any idea what's happening? Is Vim capturing keystrokes or something?
 
wim might be capturing it as a keystroke
it's happening in insert mode so might be some shortcut
 
Can you customise shortcuts?
 
all i wanna know is if there's a workaround
 
I'd say: disable the conflicting shortcuts.
 
10:31 AM
I'm new to customizing vim so I'm hoping theres a snippet for the thingy

@Adám this is great, I love the idea of sub-groups as well

Still not to late to tell Stack Exchange that you like APL.

Fun project: Create a PR for github.com/Dyalog/ride/blob/master/src/bq.js adding appropriate (not all!) terms from gist.github.com/abrudz/0bc34fc96c23dfb9da69ef2379a576c8
