Re: Brackets/Parentheses on Windows

Mostly OT :mrgreen: I also have daydreams of designing my own operating system to get lisp closer to the metal and UI, in the spirit of Genera or Squeak, but if I tried to do that on my own I'd probably officially be classed as insane. Well, a friend and I are in the planning stages of writing a sy...

Re: Lisp as assembly language??

Hey, look. The assembly language for a theoretical lisp machine that needs no GC.
http://home.pipeline.com/~hbaker1/LinearLisp.html

Stack-based, it looks like, making it probably easiest to implement in Forth or (though the implementations are rather graphics-oriented) PostScript.

Re: Only in Lisp

As with the first Lisp example, I cannot fully translate the way to intermix code and data, but it seems I can write a program just as short and clear which has the same functionality. That's true when comparing any reasonably high-level turing- complete language with another thus classifiable lang...

Re: Average Lisp age?

Oh, and I'm 28. Glad to see other (and even younger) lispers out there.
I'm not much of a programmer, but I gravitate towards programmable programs (emacs, stumpwm, conkeror(soon minno)) and I do use that facility.

Re: Average Lisp age?

I turned 22 a few days ago :D I started learning Lisp because some quotes or another said I'd have a near godly revelation in time and would end up a better programmer for it :lol: I had a few interesting sparks where I saw you didn't "need" to do things that have to be done so much they're habit(X...

Driven mad? If you're using Windows, you must already be mad, no?
Oh, snap!

You could FPGA a chip meant to do something similar.

Re: Slime: Windows SBCL with Cygwin Emacs

SBCL-windows isn't that well-supported, as I recall.

Kinda what comes with a legacy OS.

Re: Ubuntu VM for Lisp exploration and experimentation

IMO, any games that will have problems over X would have problems under the VM anyway. I still don't understand why you would prefer running xming under mswin rather than straight-up X under the VM. The former requires more software than the latter. Actually, it requires much less. Why run an entir...

Re: Ubuntu VM for Lisp exploration and experimentation

To be honest, I think installing a base Debian install in the VM, and using PuTTY and an X Server for Windows(not sure which would be best, there's some weird shit going down, and I've been off windows for a while) would be better. Less memory usage, no need to run the stuff in a separate root windo...
