    Creativity is rarely the product of a single moment
    Perhaps more often it is the result of a lifetime

    CoSy is the product of a unique lifetime with the computer . vita

      
    • I know , either directly or thru the web many of the world's most brilliant programmers . Many reading this .
      A shared attribute is our need for very concise expressions to be able to wrap their heads around the biggest concepts . Cf : CoSy.com/#PlanetaryPhysics .

    • But I know that need for no-boilerplate succinctity  is common in high achievers  who couldn't stand the life of a professional programmer . It's just they've got lots of balls in the air -- and have to keep them there .
      For them it's CoSy's function as Cptn Picard's log which is the highest value . A keystroke to insert a time stamp . Every thing simple text so it is searchable with Tweetable  phrases in the language of CoSy .
    I've uploaded a Happy PeriHelion 2017  set of updated source scripts for CoSy . In  particular  Tui.f was modified adding a ` state window to the ( call it IDE because it's ugly monofont ) ` result and ` text window structure I have found a convenient structure for a Job over the years in K.CoSy .  ( screen shot at right ) . This structure with a ` text log of actions and events past , present and planned and ` state list of common action phrases , both more or less with the same rules . Most importantly , tapping F6 on a line will evaluate that line and place any result in the ` res window . So lines in the ` state window are like items in a menu , but they are simply lines in the language of CoSy open all the way to the x86 .

    Implementing Accounting
     Also , more on the usage side than adding or fixing any vocabulary , I've gotten fundamental accounting facilities within the ball park of the very flexible system I have maintained family accounts in for years . I started casually noting future payments due , like for tomorrow I see

    | ======================== | Thu.Jan,20170105 | ======================== |
     ` BH 173.83 _f cL

    Black Hills is owed 173.83 tomorrow . I would perhaps optimally note this as ( BH ; 173.83 ) . But the expression above executes creating a list with the name BH and the floating point number 173.83 .

      ` BH 173.83 _f cL    | result below \/ |
    (
     ` BH
     173.83
    )
    | which is now as always today . 20170105.1051 |
    Essentially ' cL , catenateLists , glues them together . Interestingly in a divergence from APL there is a second concatenation function which encloses simple lists rather than catinating them into a single homogeneous list . see their documentation with this line . Try it with ' ,L and see the difference .

       s" : ,L " ?? s" : cL " ?? cL


    It's rather straight forward to go from there to what I always called DictionaryTables in K.CoSy . And from there to .csv import and export .

    The more interesting issue is the names of the correlated lists in an account dictionary . Skipping ahead a few  thoughts ,

      `( ts from to amount whatFor )` >t0>
    (
     ` ts
     ` from
     ` to
     ` amount
     ` whatFor
     )
    these are the most fundamental columns I see for a ledger entry .

      20170105.1450 _f ` PSBT cL ` BH cL 173.83 _f cL ` WP ` gas cL enc cL >t1>
    (

     ` PSBT
     ` BH
     173.83
     (
      ` WP
      ` gas
     ) )
    So here's a complete entry for the payment of the gas bill for our Woodland Park property . and can catinate these into a ledger and save it in the R Root dictionary . I've made the ` whatFor item a list itself .

      t0 t1 ,L ` Ledger Dv!

    from which we retrieve any particular "column"

    A Life Truth
    If you are really good at number crunching
    numbers with currency symbols attached
    have the greatest return on effort

    Doesn't matter your druthers .

    That's why APLs find their markets in money center cities and complex financial applications . And the highest value potential market for CoSy is as a tool for high net worth teky individuals dealing with the unique challenges  in the business of their lives . Accounting is central . That's why investment bankers are at the top of the food chain .

    #KickStartDeal
    Which brings us to the
    Kick Start Deal
    To align the interests of early adopters with the growth of CoSy and its community each of the  first 100 purchasers of a CoSyStick will also receive 1 share of CoSy the enterprise as outlined below .
    This is why crossing the threshold into CoSy being capable of its own accounting is consequential

     CoSy
    on a
    USB
    Stick
    $60
     CoSy  on a WinTel
    Stick

     $300 
    For the first 100 αs Each Stick comes with 1 share of CoSy 
    The handful of earliest possessors of  CoSy USB Sticks are grandfathered in .
     
    Abstracting from my years hanging around Wall Street , I am formally defining 1 share of as 1.e-6 portion of the cashflows and assets of CoSy which at this time is a sole proprietorship . But given the very substantial financial expertise among the recipients of this note , the proper formalization and registration should be intelligently resolvable .

    Will 1.e-6 portion is pretty standard , and may seem like very little , I recently watched a YouTube with Peter Thiel where he mentioned buying into Facebook at a valuation of $5.e6 .

    What value do you put on a paradigm shift in programming language and the nature of one's interaction with one's computing resources ? What's the value of a single open language from the chip to the math ?

    #BTW
    Given I learned APL in the first place , AI algorithms like this which are making news ,
    Google’s Multilingual Neural Machine Translation System: Enabling Zero-Shot Translation , are a motivation for constructing CoSy . It should be noted some of the useful , Ken Iverson would call them adverbs , in APLs and K are  each eachleft eachright and generally  "atomic" leaf operations are intrinsically parallel operations . Being open to the chip in Forth , parallelism can be incorporated in any definitions fitting whatever suits the available architecture .
