A Review of AGSS: "A Graphical Statistical System"
MetadataShow full item record
You can pick up the SIAM News and you will find it full of advertisements for graphical applications packages like Mathematica, GAUSS and MATLAB, and for programming languages like C++, but nothing on APL2 or application packages based on it. Similarly, look at a Statistics Journal like the American Statistician and you will see advertisements for Language S+, a very extensive graphical statistical package, and for Minitab, SAS, etc., but again, nothing remotely smacking of APL2. To anyone who knows the power of APL2, for example for data manipulation, this is distressing.
