A small niche in the programming language ecosystem is inhabited by so called array languages, APL being the most famous of those. Array programming is based on a rather unusual programming paradigm that allows to solve problems with next to no loops, much fewer conditionals than in traditional languages etc. (Some of APL's features even found their way into Perl 6.) This talk gives a short introduction to the basic ideas of array programming and describes the use of Array::APX that offers some basic array programming functionality to Perl 5 users.
