Latest News 11/3/ book reviews gives it a 10 out of 10 rating! " Turns out the border between genius and insanity is a pretty cheery place" says. Master the elegance of functional programming with Land of Lisp, an illustrated guide to the world's most powerful Ebook (PDF, Mobi, and ePub), $ Conrad Barski remembers, and with Land of Lisp, he's set out to demystify My understanding is you'll be able to download the mobi/epub.

So I started using simple text editors like Kate, and then sometimes NetBeans. And yet, for years, I've been wanting to work with a fully scriptable editing environment. I often have the need to grab a large amount of text data, transform it in various way, and save the finished product. I kept thinking that at some point I would learn sed and awk, but I never got around to it.

Then it occurred to me to go back to using Emacs. So now it is my main editor, again, my default programming environment. I use it for everything.

And I've learned Emacs Lisp. Every single day, the combination of Emacs and Lisp helps me be more productive. Way back in , I started to learn PHP. One thing that made PHP easy to learn, back then, was that I did not need to compile it. I only needed to put it on a server running PHP, and that was most servers. Because metaprogramming is confusing. For example, it allows and encourages every developer to come up with his own personal class system, templating system, and collections framework, along with their own custom language keywords to define novel control constructs.

Of course each personal framework is incompatible with anybody else's personal framework. This kind of balkanization has been the story of Lisp ever since it was invented. I've actually had a Fortune 50 employer put Clojure to use for a tool parsing an extremely high-volume data feed in near-real-time; the project was a roaring success, and the choice of tools was no small factor.

Myself included. Mind you, I love Lisp. But I wouldn't if I were working with anyone else on the same code for any length of time. Perhaps it speaks to the fact that its not very well taught.

True but those are far more complex languages. In important detail that those lack, and what classical microcomputer BASIC has, is an immediate mode interpreter. That instant response to input is a powerful tool for the beginning programmer.

You're kidding about VBScript, right? Short of abusing Scripting.

Frequently bought together

Dictionary in some rather awful ways you can't even define data structures in it, and writing code that spans more than one module involves the use of some obtuse XML crap. VBScript has its place but using it for anything other substantially more complex than short straight-line automation scripts is lunacy.

You could write some ephemeral JavaScript programs in an. But be forewarned Less importantly, your virus scanner might not like you for it. What specific limitations are you talking about? I would actually argue that at the moment, an iPod Touch is actually the best programming environment for a kid wanting to learn to program, because the feedback is visual and kind of tactile, and they can easily show off work to friends.

AppleScript is much easier to understand than to write. Nearly everyone winds up using it in an autotools-like way, looking for examples online and adapting them, with a lot of superstitious behavior.

It's extremely hard to write non-trivial AppleScript, and I'm speaking as a professional programmer with command of plenty of languages.

Can anyone post links to any Lisp web application?

Can't find it hosted but found the code to the book at the homepage [landoflisp. As to your more generic question, I think this year's lisp game expo [cliki. However, is there a reason why all such couldn't be explained with something more modern, like Python?

[P.D.F] How to Stop Time [E.P.U.B]

I'm only a few years older than you 25, soon to be 26 but learning Lisp was a very, very rewarding experience - at least to me. Even if I'm probably never going to code in Lisp or Scheme, my personal favorite it teach me to better think in the way I code.

This is a Book Review! Share twitter facebook linkedin. Denote keyword arguments? Thmileys make lithp talk thrange. Parent Share twitter facebook linkedin. Python is the Lisp of the 21st century Score: Actually every good Python editor does that automatically. Particularly PyDev under eclipse. Even on a windows machine, installing a very comprehensive toolchain involves installing Python x,y and PyGame What freaks me out is the mystification of programming and hardware.

Python is unusable because of whitespace issue Score: Python respects the visual limitations of humans It does exactly the opposite, unless humans can evolve to literally "see" whitespace characters. Lisp is cool But where's our new hyper advanced LISP machines?

Nothing will beat the Symbolics Lisp machine. Clozure is great, but not quite there yet. Sorry, old habits Dismissing lisp because of parentheses is like dismissing Citizen Kane because it was in black and white. It totally misses everything else in the language that's far more important.

Lisp is a milestone in computer language history, it was extremely influential to modern fashionable languages, and it is still relevant. To miss all that because of some parentheses is short sighted.

Little did I know that the future had only begun, and continues today. Probably will continue into tomorrow, too. In , I was typing it in directly from an issue of David Ahl's groundbreaking mids magazine Creative Computing [wikipedia.

Thanks, Dave!!! I think you can learn a lot by just retyping stuff. Wish I still had that thing. Maybe I'll rebuild it [mindsontoys. Just remember to be buried facedown, nine-edge first Those were the days!

I happened to look at the bombs away game on that list and it has this wonderful question: I have that book. I was just looking at it the other day.

I remember typing the listings in to my Atari computer at home and the Apple in the library at school. Once I typed in Super Star Trek and changed the characters to look like the ships , everyone wanted a copy.

From the review: Lisp Score: I'm waiting for Lisp to use as my asp. First, Lisp is not an acronym. I disagree, LISP is fine for beginners. It took you so much effort to type that, when you could have simply clicked on the provided link? No wonder you're AC. It's a joke, don't get your panties in a bunch.

David Ahl Score: Hi- I'm the Author Score: I paged through the book yesterday and I'm looking forward to go through it in detail. It's SO nice to find a book on lisp that doesn't make You want to carve out Your eyeballs due to sheer dryness. Can I download it as an elecrtonic copy, e. Thanks, was able to download and read right now Score: Who cares about a "cost benefit" when you can enjoy a book about Lisp this very instant?

I'd be glad to give you some pointers: Some pointers? Surely you mean cons cells! Land of the Lisp? Lisp is an East Coast thing. Blame MIT. Availability can change throughout the month based on the library's budget.
