Can anyone recommend an online course (with assignments) that focuses on array PLs?
Array PL's, like matlab?

Learn COBOL instead
Answering my own question: all the relevant stuff for J is on https://code.jsoftware.com/wiki/Main_Page
Kind of related: Is there a reason most Distros appear not to package J?
I can't generalize to "most distros", but I tried installing the void linux `J` package and found out that:
1) it only contains the CLI J shell, not the graphical environment
2) adding packages is difficult due to filesystem permissions(?) or path(?) problems. I'm not sure what the particulars here were, but I couldn't use the `pacman` manager to add stuff to the system J installation
3) compiling the QT IDE on top of the system J package + an army of QT5 development libraries still failed at some stage far along the compilation process.
I figured I'm much better off just using the prepackaged download J software offer on the website.
I actually would only want to have the shell, and regarding packages, that's usually solved by loading stuff from /usr/local.
I was wondering if there were any licensing issues that prevented J from being added to the official repositories.
Sounds normal for current netbsd linux.
