GNU APL mode for Emacs

APL might pique your interest, but not enough for you take final step forward to start hacking with it. GNU APL is there, waiting for you. Still not enough?

Set up GNU APL mode for Emacs using use-package

(use-package gnu-apl-mode
  :ensure t)

or download it, extract it, and load it with a

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/path-to/gnu-apl-mode")
(require 'gnu-apl-mode)

Never having studied a package like this before, it is educational. It is also revealing how much love and labor went into this delightful package.

Thanks you Elias MÃ¥rtenson; hear, hear!
