Hi Bug-APL,

Should the execute primitive include the structure data? I thought that the phrase in the subject line would return zero. I thought the first element would return a scalar 5, and the second would return a single element five. Both evaluate to a scalar five.

These lines, that include coercion to vector, correctly do what I wanted to do. I'm just wondering if there a reason that both inputs end up as scalars regardless of quotes or double quotes:
      ≡/⍎¨ '5' ",5"
      ≡/⍎¨ '5' ',5'
