I am trying to golf "get the border elements of a table" in J (repeated corners allowed). I have a few ideas here but am searching for improvements: Try it online!

@Bubbler Interesting, I rarely think to assign verbs. I like it better than mine, but it still feels like it should be simpler.

@Bubbler nice.

@ngn could you provide the apl solution?

@Cowsquack sure:
```⎕io←0
a←⍉↑⍎¨'.+'⎕s'&'⊃⎕nget'6.txt'
a-[0]←⌊/a          ⍝translate to top-left limit
n←1+⌈/a            ⍝size of bounding rect
i←n⊤⍳×/n           ⍝lattice points
d←a∘.-⍤1⊢i         ⍝deltas by x and y
d←+⌿|d             ⍝manhattan distances
c←d=[1]⌊⌿d         ⍝bool matrix of closest points
c←c×[1]1=+⌿c       ⍝only the unambiguous
b←∨⌿(i=[0]n-1)∨i=0 ⍝bool mask of boundary points
⌈/(~⌈/b×[1]c)∧+/c
⎕off```

thanks
@ngn nice solution

@Cowsquack thanks
