Associative Programming Language

from Gray
"APL objects are called entities, which, conceptually, may be grouped into sets, and as in CORAL, consist of blocks which contain data and ring elements.
If the ring elements are ring ties, they are called associative set reference links; if the elements are ring starts, they are called subset reference links. A data item in a block (entity) is called a direct data attribute; there are also associative data attributes which are obtained from the direct data attributes."
