    I absolutely love how esoteric APL looks. It truly looks like alien glyphs. What a capsule of a different time in computing.

      "What is that, the balls operator?" I'm just kidding, but using the Greek alphabet for keywords didn't seem to pan out. Apparently lowercase omega represents the right argument.

    Great list! However, I'm surprised they left out Forth! Though perhaps it wasn't as influential as the others. It did inspire PostScript, I think.
