"The following function "life", written in Dyalog APL, takes a boolean matrix and calculates the new generation according to Conway's Game of Life. It demonstrates the power of APL to implement a complex algorithm in very little code, but it is also very hard to follow unless one has advanced knowledge of APL.
life←{↑1 ⍵∨.∧3 4=+/,1 0 1∘.⊖1 0 1∘.⌽⊂⍵}"
Greek letters work now. Finally.
