APL2 Texts

Although APL2 differs in detail from Dyalog, especially in the aspects of interfacing with the non-APL world it's always helpful to find different perspectives on the core language and the books here are well written,

APL2 at a Glance; Brown, Pakin, Polivka; Prentice Hall; ISBN 0-13-038670-7; 1988 - 444 pages
APL2 In Depth; Thomson, Polivka; Springer-Verlag; ISBN 0-387-94213-0; 1995 - 264 pages

General

FinnAPL Idiom Library; FinnAPL; FinnAPL; ISBN 951-99397-9-2; 1982 - 95 pages.  Even though the syntax is "first-generation APL" and much has become simpler to write in modern interpreters the code snippets here are in common usage and represent the first step beyond mastery of isolated primitives.
