BTW Gnu-Apl has been recently released
Is fun to have at your side and try out the Iverson paper examples

Only issue is the keyboard: the site suggests an xmodmap solution -- makes emacs
practically unusable.

However on modern X-windows something like shell command
$ setxkbmap -layout "us,apl" -variant ",sax" -option "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
will let you input apl

I dont expect you can use it without X!!
