- Tim Budd has published a book describing an APL compiler.
(Timothy Budd, An APL Compiler, Springer-Verlag 1988)
- There are two APL compiler projects I know of but I doubt
the authors will have you a look. One is Robert Bernecky's
(email@example.com.) The other is an APL2 compiler
by someone at IBM whose name I forgot at the moment.
(E-mail me if you really need it, I'll try to remember.)
- There is an APL to C translator by Dmitri Gusev (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and others that was described in APL 94 ( ACM )
- For MATLAB there is MATCOM which was initially a free translator to
to C++ for that language but has now gone commercial. Perhaps the
manager for that project (email@example.com) might be willing
to discuss it.
