## The Role of Composition in Computer ProgrammingThis paper by Donald McIntyre is a classic in the J language world. It ranks up there with "Why Functional Programming Matters" in terms of concise, impressive examples. Most of the examples have a geometric bent, like finding the area of a polygon. Note that this paper was written using an early version of J, so some of the syntax has unfortunately changed. |
