There's a "muse" near the top of http://dfns.dyalog.com/n_tacit.htm, which tries to explain my current take on it. Other people's opinions may vary.

For me, it's functional pipelines built from a palette of small, limited scope, (Note John's muse) re-usable plug-and-play components a-la *nix shell and graphical data integration tools:

From an example by PSkocik:

Code: Select all
find /usr/bin/ |                #produce
sed 's:.*/::'  |                #translate: strip directory part
grep -i '^z'   |                #filter   : select items starting with z
xargs -d '\n' aFinalConsumer    #consume

Strangely enough full tacit version is longer than dfns-version.
