I'll be Presenting CoSy at EuroForth in Viena in September
& planning to stop by Dyalog APL in Denmark while over yonder .
Let me know if you or your group would like me to stop by and
demo and introduce you to CoSy while I'm out and about .
CoSy in 5 sentences :
CoSy is a melding of brilliances of the 2 greatest Fathers of computer language I have had the privilege to know , Ken Iverson's APL and Charles Moore's Forth .
Forth's philosophical goal is minimal vocabulary to create a dictionary capable of extending itself ; APL's is succinct notation for the expression of applied mathematics , that is : the combinatoric application of functions to data .
Forth builds its dictionary on a chip's instruction set in a single address space ; APLs' on dynamic array data , ( nouns ) , functions ( verbs ) , and operators ( adverbs including verbs as arguments ) .
Forth's simple stack structure and read-it do-it syntax enhanced with a reference counted lists of lists vocabulary creates a language unique in flexibility with APL ( via K ) simplicity in the expression of complex processes -- all with a footprint of kilobytes rather than megabytes .
CoSy continues the evolution of decades of notebook=diary=log=IDE environments built in open APL for artificial aid in the every day business of life .
I reserve the right to post all communications I receive or generate to CoSy website for further reflection .
