Can you give us an idea of what it would look like?

Windows 10: When I put the anarki folder in D:\, calling it worked fine.

However, when I put the folder in D:\Steve - D\Apps\, I got the following: D:\Steve - D\Apps\anarki>arc.cmd default-load-handler: cannot open module file module path: #<path:D:\Steve> path: D:\Steve system error: The system cannot find the file specified.; errid=2

I figure it has to do with spaces in the pathname, but unsure how to fix it.

It sounds like we need to put quotes around the '%arc_dir%boot.rkt' in arc.cmd: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1851012/set-a-path-varia...

Can you check if that fixes it?

That did it.

Thanks, akkartik!

Thanks! Wanna submit a Pull Request? ^_^

Not a big deal, I can do it too. But if it's easy you'd get to add your name to the repo :) Let me know.

Sure. Never done such before. Where are instructions for it?

Maybe this will get too involved. Do you have experience with git, say making commits and so on?

Wanna switch to email? If you click on my username, my profile has my email address.

This video was very interesting to me: A chance to learn more about functional programming and Excel. Also the speaker was one of the most animated I have seen.

I'll give that one a try. Thanks.

I have gotten passwords reset (not sure if it was arc or HN-related) from this e-mail: hn@ycombinator.com

Perhaps they could help with this issue, too.

As I remember, brevity was one of PG's goals in creating Arc. That thought came to mind as I was reading this article.

I haven't engaged in APL programming but I have done some in other array languages (Klong, J and Q'Nial) and the practice has been enjoyable, not only in getting the answer but also in learning a new way to think/twist one's mind.

While it seems a long time, 10 years seems too long.

Recommend working through the tutorial, too.

Thanks for the reminder! Your comment reminded me that the Arc tutorial (http://arclanguage.org/tut.txt) doesn't quite match the state of Anarki, so I created copies of the tutorial for both stable and master branches at http://arclanguage.github.io.

The stable branch uses the Arc tutorial unchanged. All I did was to make it a little easier to read: https://arclanguage.github.io/tut-stable.html

The master branch of Anarki has one major incompatibility with Arc 3.1, and I created a version of the tutorial with it highlighted in bold: https://arclanguage.github.io/tut-anarki.html

micoangelo, if you decide to try out Arc, be sure to start at http://arclanguage.github.io rather than the instructions here at http://arclanguage.org. Even if you use the stable branch which is compatible with Arc 3.1, it has a couple of crucial bugfixes that are otherwise liable to bite you at an inopportune moment.
