additiontable =. +/The verb additiontable is defined as the result of the / adverb applied to + as an argument. The definition is the same as the definition for sumover that you used in the previous section. The name additiontable makes sense when the dyad is used, and sumover makes sense when the monad is used. Nothing prevents using either name in a misleading way.

a additiontable a 0 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 5 2 3 4 5 6 3 4 5 6 7 4 5 6 7 8The left rank of + is 0, so the rank of the derived verb is 0 and its cell arguments are atoms. The right rank of the derived verb is _ and its cell arguments are the entire right argument. Visually the above works as follows:

0 (first atom from left) + entire right gives 0 1 2 3 4 1 (next atom from left) + entire right gives 1 2 3 4 5 2 (next atom from left) + entire right gives 2 3 4 5 6 3 (next atom from left) + entire right gives 3 4 5 6 7 4 (next atom from left) + entire right gives 4 5 6 7 9The following is an interesting use of table together with the plotting from an earlier section. The plot facility plots each row in a table argument as a separate series of data.

load 'plot' plot 1 2 o. / 0.2 * i.60

'surface' plot 1 2 o. / 0.2 * i.60

The 1 from the left argument used as the left argument of o. gives sine values in the first row. The 2 from the left argument for o. gives cosine values in the second row.

In the examples above the left rank of the original verb is always 0 and so the cells of the left argument of the derived verb are simply the atoms of the left argument. Let's look at an example where the left rank of the original verb is not 0.

f =. ,"1The verb f is append with a left and right rank of 1.

p=. 2 2 $'abcd' p ab cd q=.3 3$'ABCD' q ABC DAB CDA p f/ q abABC abDAB abCDA cdABC cdDAB cdCDAVisually:

ab (1st list from left) , entire right gives abABC abDAB abCDA cd (next list) , entire right gives cdABC cdDAB cdCDA
