Re: Poll: Which Lisp implementations do you use?

can't they just rip out libreadline (or replace it with libedit or something) and then do what they like with the license? That is, of course, if they want to change the license. It's true. Maybe they've done that; I haven't checked. But if they have, and if they want CLISP to be usable in commerci...

Paul: I think I've seen you on Stump's IRC channel, and I'm sure there are ways to get the heap size down.

Re: Rant: lisp is not C. Get over it.

Heh. I can hardly configure StumpWM without help, but i can read the code just fine and I understand it unless there's CLOS involved. OOP confuses me on multiple levels, but we come to a beautiful part of CL: I don't have to use it in my code if I don't want to. On the other hand, even a beginner's ...

Re: scheme interpreter

PLT Scheme is probably your best bet. It runs on every major OS, and includes a good editor/IDE.

Re: Lame topic - what about color themes?

'Clarity' I set my colours to things that strain my eyes less, aesthetics be damned. The highlighting colours are nice, too. My Conkeror is set to force all text white, backgrounds black, links blue or purple depending on if they've been visited, and I'm trying to make it always use a 'sony-fixed' f...

Re: What's your favorite book about Lisp?

The one place where ANSI Common Lisp lacks versus Practical Common Lisp is with respect to CLOS. PG is not a fan of CLOS and doesn't really cover it. In contrast, Peter Siebel uses is heavily in PCL. That's one reason I recommend both to people. You'll definitely learn something from each. OOP does...

I'm sure you could extend it, maybe work with cl-who code... but that's more for generation as I recall...

It'd be possible to shrink that down, but I'm not sure how it would look.
Very 1987.
You could render it in SVG, and it should scale alright then.
