Would APL/z 1.1, available at https://schorn.ch/altair_6.php be run-able on CPC CP/M 2.2?What about EMPL 1.0? ( https://web.archive.org/web/20060719161108/http://www.signiform.com/erik/programs/empl/empl.asm )
Thank you for looking,J.

Great question :)


Is it run-able anywhere? I'd like to take a look (about CP/M then AMSDOS port) if I can test it somewhere.
Have you tested it? How to you enter the special chars?

Still interested by the answer!

Talking about CP/M: where is the biggest CP/M audience/community? Usenet?

Hello,

There is a listing via Google for this:

http://www.retroarchive.org/cpm/lang/lang.htm - specifically for Z80.

A way down the list of various languages there seems to be the one you ask about.   NB the item is referred to as an 'Interpreter' as opposed to a Compiler.

I've downloaded the .zip and I'll have a look, but I know nothing about AP/L, other than that it's a famous language - used for things during the Apollo missions?

Why the interest?

Later..

I've got the file, and unpacked it.

There is the .COM, a couple of doc files, and a lot of example 'overlay' examples.

The prog can operate on an ascii terminal, and there are notes about the included symbol translations, and I assume re extra translations that you might do.   The comments say that the prog does work, even quite well, and speed is OK.   Evidently AP/L is normally an interpreter, so there may be no such thing as a compiler anyway?

Seems to use a lot of one char 'symbols' to create a prog (usually mathematical ?), so the matter of 'readability' seems to be out the window?

No doubt interesting historically

Thank you for the pointers, much appreciated.

AP/L is a very terse and powerful language, properties I love!

Using CP/M Plus you can use the 2nd register set of the Z80 too. From there I would do a port for FutureOS.
