Gentle people,
In Gnu APL SVN revision 104, load the attached BrackIndexTest.apl.gz
(after uncompressing it) with
apl -f BrackIndex.apl
Observe that M[ I ; 1 ] gives a syntax error when used as the target of
an assignment while M[ 1 ; I ] does not. A syntax error also occurs if
scalar variables are used in both axis positions. Oddly enough, with 3
dimensional matrices the syntax error occurs on the 2nd axis but not the
first and last.
