Land of Lisp: Come back here, you cowards!

October 29, 2010

I must admit it, I just don’t know Common Lisp, nor Scheme, nor any other Lisp dialect, only some notions and ideas. However, I’ve been always fascinated with the people behind them and with their defense on what they say is the most powerful and beautiful programming language. Articles, user groups, books, conferences… and basically a lot of fun.

Today, even I do not understand most of the articles in LtU, I read about the Land of Lisp. Check out the music video and interactive comic (note: this is not for everyone).

ECL 0.9j in Fink

January 3, 2008

ECL has a new release, and thus a new Fink package update. It is still under validation, so until it is committed you can use this file. To install it, just type:

$ tar zxvf ecl-0.9j-fink.tar.gz
$ sudo cp ecl-0.9j-fink/*
          /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo/
$ fink index; fink rebuild ecl; fink install ecl

Please, note that when the official ECL Fink package is updated you will have to remove your local copy (from /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo/).

Bomb Practical Common Lisp

September 20, 2007


I started reading PCL some time ago (only time for 10 chapters). This is my first Common Lisp book, and by now I’m not ready to write a great article about Common Lisp details, but if you are looking for a Common Lisp tutorial, this could be one.

Bomb it!

ECL 0.9i in Fink

June 19, 2007

For anyone interested in ECL (Embeddable Common-Lisp), I have created the package for Fink. It is still under validation, so until it is committed you can use this file. To install it, just type:

$ tar zxvf ecl-0.9i-fink.tar.gz
$ sudo cp ecl-0.9i-fink/*
          /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo
$ fink index; fink install ecl

Please, note that when the official ECL Fink package is updated you will have to remove your local copy (from /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo/).

Update 2008/01/03: ECL 0.9j has been released and the Fink package updated.

Update 2007/07/06: committed to Fink unstable.
