This was sent to the BUUG-admin mailing list, and is being forwarded in
the hopes some poor soul finds it useful.  

APL is a really annoying programming language (IMHO!) that was very
(un)popular in IBM shops a long, long time ago before people knew about
less annoying programming langugages like REXX and Perl.  Those interested
in seeing just how lousy of a programming language it REALLY is a strongly
encouraged to go. :)
