that mind was a teacher
that teacher died at the keyboard at 83
composing a tutorial (a.k.a.a lab)
for his language ...

"J is a modern, high-level, general-purpose, high-performance programming language.
J is portable and runs on Windows, Unix, Mac, and PocketPC handhelds,
both as a GUI and in a console.
True 64-bit J systems are available for XP64 or Linux64, on AMD64 or Intel EM64T platforms.
J systems can be installed and distributed for free."
