A Programming Language (Array Processing Language)

"APL was conceived by Ken Iverson [and colleagues, at IBM] as an extremely powerful mathematical notation. Indeed, this power is quite unusual, and still unique, among programming languages. Making full use of it requires the ability of the programmer to mathematically analyse the problems on a high level."

-- From the Swiss APL Users Group website

Eberhard Lutz has a good overview of collection oriented languages, a programming language family rooted within APL. Jim Weigand maintains a comprehensive APL information website.
