dfns.dws is a workspace which is supplied together with Dyalog APL. Since the introduction of direct functions in 1996, and their inclusion in Dyalog APL version 8.1,[1] people have been contributing to the collection.

Late John Scholes was the editor of this workspace. He presented a talk about the contents of the workspace at Dyalog '09.[2]

Example usage

As with other workspaces, workspace dfns can be copied into the current workspace using the system function ⎕CY:

      ⎕CY'dfns'

      ⍝ Example call: timing an expression using function `cmpx`
      1 cmpx '((1e6∘|2∘×)⍣871) 1'
0.0001302490234375

Copying in only one or more specific functions is done by adding a left argument:

      'dec' 'hex'⎕CY'dfns'

      hex 1234
 04d2 
      dec '04d2'
1234

It can also be used to import the entire workspace into a utility namespace:

      {(⎕NS).⎕CY }'dfns'

      ⍝ Example call: calendar function from the new namespace
      dfns.cal 2021 12
