Re: Distribution of LISP applications …

Commerical lisp implementations are quite costly. However Clozure Common Lisp might have a facility for this, as they were once a closed, commercial implementation. Not sure if there's a Windows version of that, though. That said, no matter what language you use, someone will hack it if it gets popu...

Re: Would a truly 'Open' Genera succeed?

Yeah, I was more interested if it would succeed as a lisp implementation/development environment. Even with that virtualisation involved, how's the performance? Has anyone done any tests? I'd do some, but I pulled a boner and installed i386 instead of amd64 on my desktop. I'm gonna reinstall when I ...

Re: Would a truly 'Open' Genera succeed?

As an aside, it might be easier to create a Genera-like system using Movitz and/or McCLIM/Climacs. These projects are very Genera-like and they have been written in modern CL from the start. Do you think these tasks would be easier if the code was available? I've heard much woe about McCLIM from pe...

Would a truly 'Open' Genera succeed?

Granted, there are degrees of success, but with all the potential in that bundle of code, how much would come to fruition in the following scenario: All of the Genera code is released under a BSD or GPL license. To bring it to its full potential would probably be monumental, after all, there's a C c...

Re: complete LISP noob needs some help

Hey Jasper, thanks for your effort. It seems like the given code isn't very well suited for replicating it on another computer then. By what you say it seems like the guys writing the code weren't expecting the code to be spread and therefore didn't write it cleanly. I guess I will tell my boss thi...

Re: Newbie question: Interpreted CL

Just to note, CLISP does compile. It just compiles to bytecode. You can even compile a complete binary image.

Re: In need of user-friendly CL interpreter

Of the four, I have had most success w/ Visual Lisp (or VLisp for short). It highlights commands, parentheses, etc. Poplog and Ufasoft Lisp Studio are both very primitive (virtually just cmd prompts) and I have difficulty using them. GNU CLisp is a bit more manageable, but I still have difficulty u...

Does it still have values instead of real variables?

Re: Looking for a Project to Help Me Gain a LISP Vocab

StumpWM needs alot of features added (resize in floating, more automation for things like dumping window-property rules and tags) and some overall polishing.
if a patch is good, it's in. No politics.

It'll help to know git, too.
