1. currently there is only address@hidden,org that deals with everything
related to GNU APL. The posting frequency is not that high, so I think
a separate list makes little sense. It is perfectly OK if you post discussions
and other non-bugs to bug-apl.
2. I could answer that if I knew exactly what component file is? Is that the
⍐, ⍗, ⍇, and ⍈ functions from APL68000? Anyway, I would like to keep
file systems, databases etc. out of the core GNU APL because the preferences
and requirements of different people are likely to be very different.
However such functions are needed in real life and the intended way to interface
to such functions in GNU APL are native functions (as opposed to introducing new
⎕xx functions or using shared variables).
3. I believe that A. - D. are of general interest. Is is just a question of how to provide
and maintain them. My view on this is that APL functions and variables should be
stored and published in a vendor-independent format that can be easily imported
into APL and easily exported out of APL, The format shall be human-readable and
easy to copy-and-paste from web pages etc. The new )DUMP command of GNU APL
is an attempt into that direction.
