yes, I can add a --safe command line option. Shared variables can

Probably the GNU project will not be too happy if we use their

it is well known that Dyalog APL and NGN APL both have an
online demo version
which is a very nice feature:
* for trying some quick idea when not at home;
* for letting other people discover GNU APL;
* for providing some kind of "permanent link" in forums,
etc. (for instance
on "golf" challenge forums;
Both systems are quite different:
* Dyalog APL has a server-side software
Of course, the server-side software needs some special care:
* security issues if the user is allowed to execute some
* CPU/memory/time quotas
Wouldn't it be nice to have GNU APL providing its own
I browsed a little and found about Emscripten:
It looks like even some large projects could be "easely"
Do you think it would be easy to do it with GNU APL?
