Hi Fausto,

Dyalog ⎕SIGNAL seems to be ⎕ES in IBM APL2 and in GNU APL.

Dyalog ⎕FMT is a little too FORTRANish for my taste. However
dyadic ("Format by example") in IBM APL2 and in GNU APL
provide similar functionality (Dyalog also seems to have a dyadic , but
it looks less powerful).

Also, the FILE_IO native function in GNU APL gives you all the formatting
capabilities of printf() and friends in C/C++. See 'info apl'.

I'm trying to convert an old workspace (designed I suppose for Dyalog
APL) related to multi precision arithmetic operation.
It uses these non standard feature:

1) quad-D
2) quad-FMT
3) quad-SIGNAL

The first one is quite trivial, the other two are more complex.

Is there any way to replicate them (2 and 3) with GNU APL ?
