Re: How to start programming in LISP

(let form evaluates to its last subform, which is (close in), so that returns T (I presume is the emacs lisp equivalent of #t in Common Lisp, i.e. true)... right?) You're thinking of Scheme. T is true in Common Lisp (and I assume it's t...

Keep in mind, that one will have to iterate over the list twice, once to get its length, and once to get the random element (apologies if you know this already). It's probably fine for your purposes, but if it seems slower than it should be, consider either not using a list or storing the list leng...
