 Running the same APL on both a Mac and a PC

For my own perverse reasons, I wanted to be able to run the very same
version of APL on both a Mac and on a PC. Yesterday I achieved that goal
by installing Virtual PC on my Mac, thus allowing me to run Windows 98 on
both my PC and my Mac. I was pleasantly surprised to find that all of the
nuances of the user interface of Dyalog APL for thel PC were preserved
when run under PC emulation on the Mac. My initial measurements suggest I
take about a two to threefold hit on performance when running under PC
emulation. Now I can enjoy the monster screen of my Mac while developing
an application which is targeted for a PC.
