Another newcomer to Lisp:
Lisp at Light Speed
Posted by jjwiseman at March 07, 2005 09:21 PM
One of the “onions” (Paul Graham's wonderful phrase) of Lisp is IF. There are multiple problems:
First, IF only allows one form for both the then-form and
else-form. That means you have to introduce ugly progn forms to
group multiple statements. How this got past the ANSI committee
I'll never know
That is the most horrible, unholy pair of abominations ever to terrorize the Lispscape.
May they wither away into nothingness, and thereby improve drastically.
Oh, thank goodness. LaLS is just a hilarious troll (read the back-articles and have a chuckle).
Kudos, brucio! :-)
no offence meant, but is the lightspeed guy completely clueless?
sure hope that was meant to be funny.
If this guy is serious then he needs some serious guidance.
It was funnier as that text file.
The if problem is fixed in Arc.
