Re: definite nooby!

As nuntius says, the ANSI Spec is the final say on anything within ANSI Common Lisp. I think it is fair to say that in some sense, there are no key/reserved words in Common Lisp. That is, in terms of syntactic elements, no token in Common Lisp is reserved. Common Lisp, however, has some restrictions...

Re: Anyone interested in ICFP?

To be honest, every problem we solved was a two request ordeal: one "/eval" to get 256 values spread over the domain and one "/guess" to submit a guess. You really can't get fewer requests than that. Whenever this failed, it was due to either our search mechanism failing to find the solution fast en...

Re: Anyone interested in ICFP?

Well, we did alright in that we understood the problem and were able to get a working solution well before the end of the weekend. We had a simple (read slow) but working solver pretty early on Saturday morning and perhaps before (there was one team-member that went off and did his own thing). We di...

Re: Hunchentoot + ECL , installed with quicklisp problem

Note that I get exactly the same behavior on my ECL running on normal X86-64 with a build that has threading support.

Anyone interested in ICFP?

The ICFP contest starts in around two weeks and we are building a Common Lisp team again this year. TL;DR let me know if you want to be part of it. For those that don't know, the ICFP Contest ( https://research.microsoft.com/en-us/events/icfpcontest2013/ ) is a long running competition that poses a ...

Re: Lisp Web Programming - Problem with starting a server

I honestly don't remember if or how PCL goes over how to load 3rd party libraries, but things have changed since it has been written anyway. We have a new and improved way to install libraries, here is the short form: 1. Download this file: http://beta.quicklisp.org/quicklisp.lisp 2. At the lisp rep...

Re: Lisp Web Programming - Problem with starting a server

If that error message is correct, which I assume it is, START was either never defined or never imported into your web package. Are you sure that you defined your package as: (defpackage :com.gigamonkeys.web (:use :cl :net.aserve :com.gigamonkeys.html)) If so, it looks as though something failed dur...

Re: Anybody interested in teaming up for the ICFP Contest?

I posted on the collaborative tools that we will be using here: http://directed-procrastination.blogspot.com/2012/07/adventures-in-collaborative-coding-with.html The team has tried out the setup a f...
