  • Cover Story: Introduction to Network Programming with APL [Dr. Andrei Kondrashev]
    TCP/IP (which stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a network communication standard that allows computers of different sizes, running totally different operating systems, to communicate with each other. The purpose of this article is to give APL programmers a basic knowledge of TCP/IP and its programming using a TCP/IP auxiliary processor. We will show how TCP/IP can be used for developing client/server APL applications running on Local Area Networks (LANs). Despite the fact that we will use Dyalog APL for Windows (APL/W) from Dyadic Ltd., any other APL system that has tools for TCP/IP support (IBM APL2 for OS/2 or SHARP APL) can be used instead.
