these days there exist many emulators for various old machines. Maybe someone has a

The first microcomputer implementation of APL was on the Intel 8008-based MCM/70, the first general purpose personal computer, in 1973. Size of arrays along any dimension could not be larger than 255 and the machine was quite slow, but very convenient for education purposes.

does any one have any experience with this ...

i had always thought that the ibm 5100 was the first 'personal computer' that ran apl
