I know a bit APL but the problem with this language is it is totally
unreadable for people that don't know already it.
I mean *most* of current languages share the same vocables : "for",
"while", ... are quite common everywhere.  An IT Esperanto kind of :)

As I was mastering C and derivative (php, javascript, ...), I found no
difficulties to understand code wrote in Lua (obviously, writing
something is another story :) ), but APL code looks like to me a Martian
language from outer-space for me.
