While I was sick to my stomach for a good portion of Christmas morning (12am to 3:30am) I took the time in between trips to the great porcelain repository to read some chapters of Practical Common Lisp and started to toy a bit with code. I have to say learning emacs and lisp at the same time is interesting’ particularly while your stomach is motivating you to launch yourself across the room at high rates of speed every 15 to 30 minutes.
(format t “hello world”))
Yes… the traditional hello world program. Why do all how to program guides do this? Is there some reason for this?
Well off I go to learning more lisp and emacs!
