I'm totally confused. The most basic assignment, i.e.
A<-3.2
taken from the help didn't work. I got errors trying to
execute the above. Am i retarded or something...?!

Even when i run "clear ws" i get the error.

The APL-fonts that's been mentioned doesn't seem to
produce any output to the screen, either.

I'm "using" Dyalog APL. Any comments?

Konrad,

Are you typing in the lessthan and hyphen characters? If so, that's the
problem. What you want is to type in the APL left assignment arrow. I do
not know where that characters is on the keyboard in Dyalog APL. I suggest
you check their documentation for information about typing APL characters.

Yes i am. Or, rather, i was.



I'll do that, thanks. Allthough, i suspect that i did something
wrong during the installation since i get no characters on the
screen at all, as if the keyboard went dead (when i'm in APL
keyboard mode, that is).

I'm definitely not an expert, so it's only a hunch, but it feels
like i should be able to, at least randomly, get some letters or
sybols on the screen...

On my English keyboard the left arrow is mapped to Ctrl-{

Which version of Dyalog are you using? If you have the pre-release
Unicode version (11.1) distributed at the conference earlier this
month, then the IME (Input Method Editor) works like any other Windows
IME, and you have to select it from the Language toolbar on your
taskbar.

This isn't turned on automatically for the Dyalog session - you can
use any IME with 11.1.

I've spent the weekend working in 11.1 on a bilingual English-Japanese
application, in which the Japanese text is handled as naturally as the
English...
