APL is justly regarded as a language we don't need to know about any more
(mainly because modern keyboards don't have enough keys for it :-) )...
but just in case you are interested, take a look here:

A+ is a language grown out of APL, developed by people from Morgan
Stanley (the investment bank). There is a GPLed interpreter system which
you can download from that site.


If you are intested in even more esoteric languages, you might want to
look at the Cat's Eye Technologies website:

part of which is a collection of esoteric programming language --
including two really beautiful ones: Befunge (2D source code), and
Brainf**k (minimalist and beautiful), as well as several horrible ones,
Intercal (the original obfuscated programming language) among them.
