Exported infoboxes and made a comparison table. I think tomorrow I'll do another with developer and maybe platform information (including release and other dates).
Just remembered about control structures. It'd make a lot of sense to have a column for those.
 
4:41 AM
@Marshall Cool. The amount of dialects is way higher than I had realized. Thanks.
 
5:25 AM
@Adám probably not

@Marshall Awesome! Another column that might be interesting is namespaces. (The main article needs mention of APL+.)

Did control structures and namespaces, although it's possible I missed namespaces in some dialects that have them (GNU? NARS2000?).
Workspaces versus text files is also possibly interesting, probably better for a different table.
 
@Marshall Fixed.
Btw, is there a sort order for that table?
 
It's by release date.
 
I guess that makes sense (and could be a column) but it is also slightly misleading as it e.g. makes it look like APL*PLUS was way early with nested arrays, when it actually only got them later.
 
7:31 PM
We could probably stand to have separate APL*PLUS and APL*PLUS II rows.
 
Yeah.
 
I'll do that.
 
7:43 PM
Changed it to one row for all the tradfn-only APLs and now it fits on my screen!
 
@Marshall Wouldn't it be better to change "APL\360, APL.SV, …" to "APL\360 … APL\3000"?
 
I very much doubt APL\3000 was the last such dialect (even excluding Aplette).
68000 didn't have any of that stuff, did it?
 
As with APL*PLUS, there was the \360-style APL.68000 and an APL2-style "APL.68000 Level II"

Starting to look like promotional material for Kap. Heh.
 
@B.Wilson Dyalog is planning big ints/rats, but it will take a while before they are included.
@Marshall Do you have a source for APL*PLUS II having control structures? It certainly didn't have them in the version I remember from the early '90s. It seems they were only added in APL*PLUS III.
> The big language news with APL*PLUS Ill is the inclusion of control structures
 
11:58 PM
RIDE-dyalog session, why I can not create session when I start up my RIDE?
why there is no default configuration info?
not sure what to put it in order my RIDE?
 
4.5 will soon be released and it has a setting to auto-launch the top-most configuration
(but you can already download and use it now)
