Re: need help with lispworks

Quick question; why not work on making SBCL more portable seeing as SBCL already has a pretty decent compiler with type inference etc. going for it? * Memory usage; * Executable size: like you would do in C, an ECL executable is linked against libecl.so or ecl.dll (which is already very small) and ...

Re: need help with lispworks

CL is quite stable. Juanjo does a great job with it and is very responsive to any problems found. I am glad you got that impression :-) IMO, it's a more specialized version of CL. I really would like to understand why people do have that image of niche lisp. There are three things that I normally r...

Re: Compile-time information across macros

I have been pondering something similar. I don't mean to hijack your thread, but I wonder if LOAD-TIME-VALUE make sense in this context(?) edit: ..maybe not; can't dump this to fasls etc.. edit2/update: ..or maybe if i rearrange things a bit..

Re: Lisp and CGI or Fastcgi

IMHO don't bother with shared hosting. It's nothing but hassle; wrong glibc version, wrong postgresql version, wrong some-other-library version, wrong apache/lighttpd/nginx/other-front-end config etc. etc.. VPS is dirt cheap and you get full root access: http://prgmr.com/xen/ ..there are many; the X...

Re: Experience of Learning Lisp

CL-USER> (defvar *foo* '((:a . 1) (:b . 2))) Please, this is well known stuff for most programmers and if not it is an useful feature to be (made) aware of. Literal data, constants and SBCL's global variables ( SB-EXT:DEFGLOBAL ) are important when things need to execute as fast as possible. Always...

Re: non-linear list conversion to linear

Just use Clojure. Seriously. I wouldn't want to miss out on all the goodies in Common Lisp; CLOS, MOP etc. is awesome stuff -- and the SBCL compiler and the integration with Slime is very good. SBCL has "threading, sockets, unicode, etc.", and it also has FSet: http://common-lisp.net/project/fset/ ...

Yup. See also: threading, sockets, unicode, etc. ;) This is why we need to come up with a CLv2.
Oh, you mean SBCL? :lol:
