You might want to look at A+ (, an APL
derivative that Morgan Stanley Dean Witter released as open source last
month.  It has a functional flavor and is good for number crunching.  It
uses the APL character set which, while concise and elegant, makes
setting up a development environment a bit of a hassle if you're not a
*nix font guru.  In addition to the source, binaries are available for
Irix, Linux, and Solaris.
