newLISP is a Lisp-like scripting language with most of the stuff that people expect in a modern programming language already built-in, plus a little more:

  • Shared library import
  • TCP/IP and UDP
  • Perl-style regular expressions
  • XML parsing
  • Tcl/Tk front end
  • mysql, SQLite and ODBC
  • CGI, SMTP, POP and FTP
  • matrix and statistics functions

Paul Graham's comment on newLisp, over at Lambda the Ultimate: “[If] I'm going to be beaten to the punch by another Lisp dialect, can we make it Goo?”

NewLisp is cool! It brings some fresh air to the lisp comunity which is stuck with staring at the Common Lisp standard.

Why isn't it compared with CLISP, which can be used for scripting, too? And I can use a Common Lisp book and learn how to program it.

Any comparing benchmarks between newLisp and CLISP?

Can anybody comment on Goo and how it compares to CL?
