Publishing the program

Hello, I have read though a Common Lisp book called 'Practical Common Lisp', and it has taught me a lot about how to use Common Lisp, but I still am curious as to how you actually produce an executable for a lisp program for distribution. I am using the 'lispbox' (Lisp in a Box) IDE (a package of Em...

Someone should write some great framework in Lisp so people can see how good it is. I dont know about the libraries, I haven’t used Lisp enough to write real programs ...

Problem with my sine function

Hello, I have been learning Common Lisp only for a few days. I thought I would try to write my own simple program to calculate the sine of a number by going though the Taylor series. Here is my program: (defun fact (n) (if (<= n 1) 1 (* n (fact (1- n))))) (defmacro odd (n) `(1+ (* ,n 2))) (defun sin...

I am a C++ programmer with six months experiance. I am particularly interested in 3D graphics/game programming (espe...
