Over

From APL Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Over () is a primitive dyadic operator which takes two function operands and produces a derived function which pre-processes the argument(s) using the monadic right operand, before applying the left operand on/between the result(s).

Explanation

When the resulting function is used monadically, it has the same behaviour as if the Beside or Atop operator had been used:

  (g  h) 
g (h )

When the resulting function is used dyadically, both arguments are pre-processed:

 (g  h) 
(h ) g (h )

Examples

      x3 1 2
      y4 6 5
      x +(/) y ⍝ add the max of x and max of y
9
      ⍝ same as
      (/x)+⌈/y
9
