Iverson (the creator of APL) has come up with the language J. Ithas much of the philosophy and characteristics of APL with a new structureand format. You can get a version compiled for the NeXT via anonymous ftpat watserv1.waterloo.edu in languages/apl/j/next as J_NeXT.tar.Z. I justtried it under 2.0 and it seems to work fine. I know it works under 1.0(which is what it was compiled for).I have appended to the end of this posting the readme.doc from J which hasthe copyright notice with copying limitations and where to get a manualfrom.By the way, J is not APL. In some ways it is better, and in others itis perhaps a little more primitive. J is still in its infancy, so expectit to expand and improve significantly ove rthe next few email@example.com--- readme.doc ---Copyright (c) 1990, Iverson Software Inc.J is a licensed product of Iverson Software Inc.

Quote from: nuss on October 04, 2023, 01:22:38 PMRe: @pTeK : Have not yet found the software, but still searching.The screenshot seems to be from around the year 2000.At the moment I think it might be a an app running on Rhapsody (besides the image-name) or OpenStep for Windows/Solaris.Also @stepleton is right. This really might be some proprietary software, only used inside one company. My Usenet search showed plenty of job offers from financial companies for NeXT/OpenStep developers to create some great new trading tools in the 90s.

The contest, co-sponsored by Computerworld magazine and theObject Management Group, is designed to salute organizationsand developers who have successfully implemented objecttechnology in their operations.The five award categories ranged from "Best Object-BasedApplication Developed Using Non-Object Oriented Tools" to the topcategory, "Best Application Utilizing Reusable Components Leveragedfrom or for Use in Other Projects", where the advantages ofobject-oriented technology are used to the utmost.The Risk Management System is a NEXTSTEP-based customapplication designed and developed by FML for Creditanstalt,Austrias leading bank. Creditanstalt uses the application tomonitor and report the risk and performance of portfolios intheir securities trading division."The NEXTSTEP environment allowed us to develop a complexcustom application in minimal time through remarkably simpleintegration with other applications and existing classlibraries. Very little extra code was necessary to harness thepowerful mathematical capabilities of Mathematica and theadvanced layout and report generating functions of Improv forour application. A lot of the functionality in the finishedapplication did not require any programming at all. The riskmanager himself dragged user interface items from our customInterface Builder palette and specified the computations inthe form of Mathematica expressions in the correspondingInspector panels. The savings in development time andunnecessary communication overhead between the domainexpert and the programmers were enormous." said WernerStaringer, head of the Financial Markets Lab.The winners were announced yesterday at a special ObjectWorld Expoawards banquet at the Moscone Center in San Franscisco. Steve Jobs,CEO and Chairman of NeXT Computer, was the master of ceremonies. The Financial Markets Lab, based at the Institute of SoftwareTechnology of the Technical University Vienna, specializesin financial software.

Quote from: nuss on October 09, 2023, 12:41:36 AMHallo @pTeK , the archive consists of the content of many CDROMs and mirrored ftp sites. My favorite for searching NeXT information from the 90s is the Usenet part of Peanuts, which I simply scan with `find` and `zgrep`.
