I don't think that the support for tacit programming in modern APL

what "SO" means, assuming the "S" stands for standard.

Oh, you don't know what SO means? It's the international misspelling of ISO. :-) 

Jokes aside, while I'm all in favor of such extensions for tacit
programming (composition, currying, hooks/forks/trains, as in NARS2000,
NGN, newer versions of Dyalog, J), I think proper lambdas are a much
more important and fundamental issue.

What is a fork and a train? I've heard the _expression_ before, but I don't know what it is.
