Usage

Install NodeJS.

Download apl.js and make it executable:

wget http://ngn.github.io/apl/lib/apl.js
chmod +x apl.js

Running ./apl.js without arguments starts a REPL.

Running it with an argument executes an APL script:

./apl.js filename.apl

It can be require()d as a CommonJS module:

var apl = require('./apl');
console.log(apl('1 2 3 + 4 5 6').toString());

or used in an HTML page:

<script src="http://ngn.github.io/apl/lib/apl.js"></script>
<script>
    var result = apl('1 2 3 + 4 5 6'); // apl is a global variable
</script>
