...Common Lisp on TV (for weeks)
For Your Information:
As some of the #lisp people on irc.freenode.net knows
I'm (together with two geek friends from fazlamesai.net)
producing a technology program called Fazla Mesai on a
Turkish TV: http://www.teknolojitelevizyonu.com
which broadcasts over cable and sattelite (including the
It is seldom that we don't mention Lisp this way or the
other on every Wednesday evening between 21:30 - 22:40.
Whenever possible we try to show something related
to Lisp, audiovisually. This means... yes, videos.
What have we done until now? Well, we talked about
...Common Lisp Directory news
The development of the Common Lisp Directory is going on. As I have
several real work projects to finish, I can't spend as much time as I would
like on this project, but it is progressing anyway and I hope to be able to
put the new version online next week.
The Common Lisp Directory is here: http://www.cl-user.net
(Thanks to Arthur Lemmens for this cool name ;-)
So far the categorization system is finished and I'm adding the following
objects to the directory.
...Common Lisp Application Builder news
The Common Lisp Application Builder project now has its own domain:
The CLISP patch for Windows is updated to the latest version 2.38 and with
the help of Surendra Singhi for the SWIG module and Justin Heyes-Jones for
the SDL mapping, now we have our first SDL test program on Windows, which
is end-user friendly (no console window, only 2 files to install).
Next steps will be finishing the SDL Lisp bindings, porting of some games
and creating a simple to use gaming package. If you want to help with the
project in general or discuss how the gaming package should lo...News about the European Common Lisp Meeting
We now have 104 registrations from 20 countries for the European
Common Lisp Meeting in Hamburg. This means that there are only
21 seats left. If you want to be sure of a place, don't wait with
registering until April 19 but register NOW at:
About the dinner on Saturday evening: thanks to Edi's negotiation
skills the original maximum of 80 people has now turned into a
maximum of 90 people. But with 83 seats already taken you'd better
register YESTERDAY if you're interested in more than a lonely Big
Mac on Saturday evening.

| This award is often seen as a competition between open source CMS projects,

Am still completing my expert system or rather diagnostic system in
Common Lisp and bit stressed right now. I have saved my cases into lisp
structures using defstruct into a textfile. THe question is :
1. How to extract structures one by one from the textfile rather than
the whole bunch of them?
2. And how do i index them and append them to a database called
*example-database* (which consist of previous cases using
defstruct)after a new case is saved into the textfile? How do I update
it to *example-database* after extracting from the textfile?

How about, when trying to decide "what is lisp" or to apply "lispp" to
some _thing_, we just go very low level and somewhat retro and mostly
As a straw-man: a lisp is any language implementation which includes a
run time system with some recognizably lispish types (cons pairs,
numbers, symbols) having their familiar properties (latent typing,
gc-based memory management), and implemented in a recognizably
traditional way (or a brilliant new way, worthy of being added to the
design space). In the language implemented, programs are expressed in
s-exp syntax and th...Are you interested in creation of separate group for common lisp comp.lang.common-lisp
As we all know common lisp doesn't have it's own group but instead
uses generic comp.lang.lisp that belongs to the whole family of lisp
languages. This brings a lot of problems reagarding a tone and
discussion in comp.lang.lisp, confusing new users unaccustomed to
generality of comp.lang.lisp and its mostly common lisp population.It
also fuels flame wars between common lispers and users of the other
dialects. The latest example is thread What kind of Lisp should I
learn if I want to start programing with Lisp?
I propose a creation of new usenet group comp.lang.common-lisp aimed
