Pair () is a primitive function equivalent to the dfn {,⊂ } which aids in constructing nested arrays during tacit programming where stranding by juxtaposition is not available. It is also equivalent to , using the Over operator or ,⍨∘⍨∘ using only traditional operators. It was introduced in Extended Dyalog APL, and then adopted into dzaima/APL.

Common usage

Its plain usage is in pairing up two parallel values:

└───────┴─────┘

It can also be combined with Mix to increase rank rather than depth:
