Re: New book: Land of Lisp

I was checking out "Casting SPELs in Lisp" again (http://www.lisperati.com/casting.html) and noticed a message just under the frontcover, which says: 3/31/10 Breaking News- Watch out for my new Super Fantastic Expanded Lisp Comic Book/Text Book from No Starch Press this Summer! Travel to the Land o...

Re: New book: Land of Lisp

It looks like the release of Conrad Barski’s long awaited graphic text on Lisp is getting closer. You can now order it from Amazon, although the publication date is listed as April 28, 2010. Conrad’s site says that it’s “due out this Fall” and the publisher’s site says “Coming March 2...

Re: New book: Land of Lisp

Finally, I think the book is delayed and perhaps it will come out this fall instead of March: http://www.lisperati.com/landoflisp/ I've just had a proper look at that page and I see it mentions 'April 1st 2008' and 'I hope you enjoy this little April 1st "sneak peek"'. Also, the Last-Modified heade...

Excellent! It's "fall" (Autumn) here now! Where can I get it? ;)

Re: Clojure reactions?

Bummer. It would be nice if the JVM was a bit more open to other languages. The JVM itself just has so many Java-specific assumptions embedded into it. That's understandable given its history, particularly early-on when JVM performance was so bad, but it really hurts when you're trying to implement...

Re: Clojure reactions?

It seems Rich doesn't think the above will have much impact on Clojure:

Re: Clojure reactions?

By the way, the following was just posted to the Clojure mailing list by Baishampayan Ghose: http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/DynTypeLang/index.html It's an article about features of JDK7 that are designed for dynamically typed languages. The article doesn't mention Clojure, but it do...

Re: Clojure hate and Language Wars

I'm only unhappy when I use the loop..recur form, because relative to CL's loop, it spreads the looping machinery all over the place. I think some sort of simple cl-loop macro should take care of that pain point. One (possibly?) good thing about loop...recur is that you can't accidentally use non-t...

Re: need help on Clozure CL/Emacs on Vista

When I run my program, it reads some control file. But my program breaks because the control file cannot be opened or read (not sure)? This is the input stream when break happens #<BASIC-FILE-CHARACTER-INPUT-STREAM ("D:/CONTROL/control-file.66"/1828 ISO-8859-1) #x141EFE57D> What is "/1828 ISO-8859-...

Re: Slew of DLL Dependencies

My gut feeling is that this is the kind of thing you could make your system definition tool handle, that is tell it that A.dll depends on C.dll and D.dll, etc., and it should be able to load them in the right order. Maybe, but you'd still have to figure out what that order is. Can't Windows' dynami...
