### WWKD

In the HOPL IV Q&A , I mentioned the WWKD (what would Ken do) subroutine that I have in my head. In the immediately following comment, Morten said, Well, we didn’t all have the benefit working enough with Ken to be able to predict what Ken would say, … I would like to point out that I benefited ...

### Re: ⊕ and ⊗

The Kronecker product in APL is either A×⍤0 2⊢B or A∘.×⊂B or ⊃⍪⌿,/A∘.×⊂B , and are more general.

In any case, I think the arguments for ⊕ are strong and are made stronger by the arguments for ⊗, and will prevail in the long term (e.g. 100 years).

### ⊕ and ⊗

This post is a condensed and expanded version of the APL Chat Forum post j. from 2020-04-09. From [ Hui and Kromberg 2020 ]: For example, the dialect J has the scalar function j. defined by {⍺←0 ⋄ ⍺+⍵×0j1}¨; that is, a scalar function whose monadic definition is ⍵×0j1 and whose dyadic definition is ...

### indexing by booleans

In the recent sequence of posts (for example Addition on 1-Byte Integers ), the game was to write a function g such that (x symbol y) ≡ x g y where g does not use the function denoted by "symbol". Here, the game is to write a function h which does not use [;] or ⌷, so that: x ← t[?...

### where

In previous posts , the game was to write functions g such that (x symbol y) ≡ x g y for x and y of interest where g does not use the primitive symbol in question. Here, the game is to write a function h which does not use ⍸ or / or ⌿, so that for boolean vector b, b ← 1=?9973⍴2 (⍸b)...
