Stevan Apter on the historical development of K (K3, K4), and Q: "[k3] has atoms, lists, and dictionaries, q has atoms, lists, dictionaries, tables, and keytables. for the purist: q tables are lists of dictionaries having the same domain, and keytables are dictionaries where the domain and range are tables with the same cardinality. this simple extension, viz. having the interpreter recognize table and keytable as derived types, has powerful implications."
