- Composing at the metalevel
I’ve started reading “Notes from the Metalevel: An Introduction to Computer Composition“, by Heinrich Taube, and realised I should have done that a long time ago! Notes From the Metalevel is a practical introduction to computer composition. It is primarily intended for student composers interested in learning how computation can provide them with a new […]
- RDF programming with AllegroCL and AllegroGraph
Allegro Common Lisp (wikipedia) is a commercial implementation of the Common Lisp programming language developed by Franz Inc. Allegro CL provides the full ANSI Common Lisp standard – but more interestingly for me, it also provides a very comprehensive suite of tools for semantic web programming. So I decided to give it a go, in […]
- Clojure or not clojure?
Clojure is a quite recent programming language that’s becoming popular among developers; the big selling point is that it’s functional and dynamically typed (such as Lisp or Python), but since it uses Java’s Virtual Runtime as its platform it also accommodates the needs of the many developers have been growing up in the Java world. […]
- Scheme and Lisp
If you’re coming from Lisp, and then start using Scheme (or the other way around) there are a few small differences between the two languages that it’s useful to always keep in mind. I tried to do that a number of times, but inevitably I find myself once again wondering: how do you say ‘progn’ […]
- A video that may convince you that LISPers are a bit crazy
Actually it’s not just a video, there’s a book too: Land of Lisp, Learn to Program in Lisp, One Game at a Time! by Conrad Barski, M.D. …
- AJAX in Lisp with JQuery
I was asked to give an example of lisp+ajax, so once I prepared it I thought it could be of help to other people too :-) First of all, I am not a professional lisper at all, just got to know it a little during the last two years. The code I’m presenting here might […]
- Lisp blog engine
I’ve been very happy to help out Cyrus Harmon debugging his Nuclblog package to make it work with lispworks too (he developed it using sbcl)… it took a dozen emails to understand each other – but the result was worth it! It’s a hunchentoot-based engine that you can easily modify and adapt to your needs…. […]
- Lispdoc – Online Lisp Documentation Search
I read this inonPlanet Lisp: William Bland just keeps on improving lispdoc, his online Lisp documentation search utility. The utility has a lot of neat features: A search brings up links to both the CLHS and key CL books and also provides a usage example. Content is provided from Practical Common Lisp (PCL), Successful Lisp, […]
- New macs too new for me
I just got a new double processor do-it-all mac from the generous kmi, but surprise…… LISP DOESNT WORK ON IT! The link is from one year ago… i know i’m among the last ones arriving here…and especially MCL (which i keep saying is ultra-cool) is a total mystery on intel-based macs. A digitool policy?
- What Lisp to choose, really?
During the last days, I almost switched from Lispworks (too many tabs, too many things in general) back to MCL (essential, fast, with a powerful meta-dot command). But I run into many problems, the most important of them is getting ASDF to run, so to be able to run the server (Hunchentoot) from there. I […]
