Beside (), Compose or After is a primitive operator. It shares the glyph with Bind. Called dyadically with function operands f and g, it uses g monadically to pre-processes the right argument before applying f to the given left argument and pre-processed right argument. Called monadically with operands f and g, it applies f to the result of applying g to the argument.

In usage, X fg Y is equivalent to X f g Y, and fg Y is equivalent to f g Y. Thus, beside can be defined as the dop { ⍺⍺ ⍵⍵ }.


When use monadically, fg behaves the same as an atop.

      -÷ 2 
      ⍝ same as

When use dyadically,

      ⍝ same as

When used with Commute, fg forms a Hook.

      ⍝ same as this, because operator is left-associative, unlike functions which is right-associative
      ⍝ same as
