Re: 2D graphics/turtle lib suitable for kids?

I wrote a simple turtle graphics library based on lispbuilder-sdl. The code can be found here: https://github.com/johanberntsson/cl-tu ... urtle.lisp

Re: 2D graphics/turtle lib suitable for kids?

Thanks all for the replies so far. I'm a bit short of time and was hoping to find something ready to use, but I suppose that putting together a simple turtle lib myself shouldn't be too hard. I'll have a look at the sdl and tk options. Re: Lisp for a child - I don't really think that is too far-fetc...

2D graphics/turtle lib suitable for kids?

My daughter found Land of Lisp on my shelf and wants to learn Common Lisp. I approve of course, but for a 10-year old child I think the examples in the book are a bit too abstract. I'd like to start simple interactive graphics (create stuff from the REPL - instant satisfaction), but I have no luck f...

Could you list what libraries you bundle with Able? I cannot find that information on your home page.

Re: The Future of Lisp

As a question, has this ever been done well automatically with today's compiler technology? People always cite functional programming as being beneficial for auto-parallelizing, and in theory they're quite right, but does any current compiler actually do this well today? GHC with Haskell, maybe? :?...

Re: Limp, a Lisp mode for vim

* That *somehow* Limp has changed indenting in Lisp files. My previous indent system wasn't perfect — custom indents for macros are hard-coded — but Limp seems to do the wrong thing for me all the time: Yeah, the indentation thing is really annoying, but there is already a bug report filed on t...

Re: What are you doing in Common Lisp lately?

I've just implemented a compiler that reads a specification file and outputs code that can encode/decode a communication protocol for an on-line game. Sure beats manually making code to for hundreds of packet types. Another advantage is that I can easily add back ends for many languages. Not to ment...

Re: Failing to asdf-install cl-yacc in Windows

The web site where cl-yacc lives has been missing for at least two days. It worked last Thursday when I tried it, so the problem is not the download, but something goes wrong during the compilation/installation. Just wondered if this is a known issue, and if I'm doing anything obviously wrong. I'm ...

Failing to asdf-install cl-yacc in Windows

I have an application using cl-yacc that works fine on Linux, but when I try to install cl-yacc in Windows (sbcl) I get errors. I use: (require 'asdf) (require 'asdf-install) (asdf-install:install 'cl-yacc) First I got an error that tar failed. I installed GNU tar, and added it to PATH. Now the syst...
