I'd be remiss to fail to state that I completely disagree with the majority opinion on your submission of this article three days ago on Lobsters. Neither the majority, nor, unfortunately, the implementation above, `masturbation.apl.` What is the proper method of viewing this file? I see this:
sizeâ† 256 â The size of a memory cell.
âˆ‡ zâ† convert x;âŽ•IO â This exists purely because of the
âŽ•AV differences across implementations.
âŽ•IOâ† 0â—Šzâ† size|âŽ•AVâ ³x

Hello Lettucehead; I'm glad you found some value in it. The encoding of the masturbation.apl is UTF-8, currently, but I'll be offering multiple encodings if I find a good one to also support. If you view the file in a common text editor, you should probably get the right result, dependent on line ending conventions and whatnot. For clarification, you'll see this; feel free to comment again once you give it a read:
size←256 ⍝ The size of a memory cell.
∇ z←convert x;⎕IO ⍝ This exists purely because of the ⎕AV differences across implementations.
