You never compile on the device itself. The Android NDK contains all the tools necessary to do cross-compilation.

The way you build the application is to first build GNU APL as a library (use the --with-android as configure option). You then build the native code (there in a Makefile in the project directory that builds this native part). You can then build the android application normally.


Did you cross compile on a regular computer and then transfer the executable, or did you compile it on the Android device?

Yes. I got it running on Android a year ago, but I haven't worked on it since.

Apart from running the language itself, there is a simple user interface as well as a custom keyboard with APL symbol support. This keyboard works with any application.

I'll be happy to help anyone get it running in case they want to contribute to development.

I have an app I'd like to write that I'd like to be able to run on my Android tablet too.  Rather than multiply the time it takes to write the app by five in order to support a GUI that I don't need, I thought of using APL in order to knock it out fast. 

Although I'd like to be able to run on my Android tablet, I will not be programming it there, so supporting the APL character set is not important at this point.

I see Elias has some GNU APL stuff for Android.  Does GNU APL run on Android?  If it does, can someone give me some pointers on how to get going (C++ compiler for Android, steps, etc.)?  (I also need sqlite support.)
