Questions about Scheme community acitivy937 (12/20/2008 10:56:17 AM) comp.lang.scheme Hi, I wonder what to say about Lisp activity after 2000. I'd like to add something to a Wikipedia article. My feeling is that CL activity is quite a bit up since 2000, compared to 1995-2000. Dan Weinreb has r... Rainer

Great screencast tutorial: Raytracing in Lisp3357 (12/15/2008 2:10:21 PM) comp.lang.lisp Probably many know that I made a few movies showing obscure and dead user interfaces or how to write some code parsing trivial data records. This has spawned some screencasts done by other people. This time it... Rainer
AND type specifier in ANSI CL, interpretation1551 (12/5/2008 9:19:12 PM) comp.lang.lisp Hi, given a type like this one: (and symbol (satisfies fboundp)). Would you think that (typep 3 '(and symbol (satisfies fboundp))) can signal an error? In this case the order of type checks is importan... Rainer
A minigame written using CLOS3053 (12/31/2010 9:33:10 AM) comp.lang.lisp Hello, I've been wanting to learn CLOS lately. So, after reading Keene's book carefully, I wrote a small space shoot'em up game using CLOS, lispbuilder-sdl, and cl-opengl. The game itself isn't noteworthy--tho... psilord760(86)
Using the debugger correctly1856 (1/9/2011 6:42:29 PM) comp.lang.lisp Hi, I'm a newbie using sbcl 1.0.4 on debian, with Slime. I'm trying to work out how to use the debugger so that it shows me where in my function an error was generated. I've posted the following questoin on ... joelhalbert0(4)
Ugly coding from a lisp green belt2153 (1/20/2011 9:03:43 AM) comp.lang.lisp So I have been speding hours on coding a single function #'frgo and trying to get it to "look good". I have a list of lists defining an instruction of a to-be-built Lisp CPU like this: '((op 6 nil) (nil 3 #... dg1sbg1(142)
Smalltalk-like Tools78133 (1/22/2011 8:14:01 PM) comp.lang.lisp Hey, all.
I'm a fairly experienced programmer, in Algol-style languages. I've
been trying to find an excuse to really learn (by which I mostly mean
"write something useful in it") CL for years. That's most... james.ashley(5)
loop iterate and nested collection1463 (3/3/2011 10:29:54 AM) comp.lang.lisp Consider this: (loop for i from 1 to 5 do (loop for j in '("a" "b" "c" "d") collect (list i j))) > NIL In the package iterate to avoid that the list created by the inner iterate is simply ignored ... franco(246)
PCL trash5066 (3/4/2011 3:53:10 AM) comp.lang.lisp While dumpster-diving, I found a discarded copy of PCL.* The book devotes a whole chapter to the COBOLer's delight: LOOP. Those who aren't comfortable with higher-order functions are completely dependent upon... w_a_x_man(3243)

History of :no-error17 (10/9/2013 10:42:07 AM) comp.lang.lisp Was the :no-error clause for handler-case introduced in Common Lisp, or was it adopted from some earlier language? It was apparently added to Common Lisp in 1988
My first steps with MoCL116 (10/19/2013 4:57:36 PM) comp.lang.lisp
My first tests would indicate that it's not ready for production.
mocl is far from a complete CL implementation.
I've tried it with: mocl repl --ios /tmp/ which invokes the repl that's
announced as exper... pjb(7873)
