A blog dedicated to mathematics and programming!

As of now, my blog is being migrated here. You can find all the old content over here.

Today is the day! Today is the day we take our APL programs and interpret them, so that something like ÷ 1 2 3 -⍨ 1.1 2.2 3.3 can output 10 5 3.33333333.

Let's build a simple APL interpreter! APL is an array-oriented programming language I picked up recently. The ease with which I can write code related to mathematics, its strange built-ins (which look like , , or ) and the fact that it is executed from right to left make it a fresh learning experience!

This blog post tells the short story of how I wrote a simple interpreter for a toy programming language!
