u"v m"v Copy Rank Conjunction

u"v and m"v are equivalent to u"n and m"n respectively, where n is the list of ranks of v.

The benefit of being able to use v itself, instead of its list of ranks, n, is: it saves you having to find the actual ranks of v if you want to create a verb out of verb u (or noun m) having the identical ranks of v .

a not-uncommon requirement.

   v=: <      NB. sample v - Box (<)
   v b. 0     NB. the list of ranks of v
