as a newbie to APL, I bought "Mastering Dyalog APL" in order to discover
the language; I am aware that several variants exist, and I want to use
GNU APL as much as possible because of its license.

Coming from functional programming and J, I miss the "power" operator
which is described in "Mastering Dyalog APL" and which does exist in J.
In Dyalog APL, the symbol ⍣ (U2363) is mapped to such a feature, which is
very useful for some "loopless pieces of code" as well as for inserting
some "inline" conditional structures.

Do you think such an operator may be implemented in GNU APL as well?

Best regards,

Thomas Baruchel
