It's time to learn Scheme

To me, it tells me LISP is a great functional language which has a huge number of technical accomplishments. It just happens to present them in a complex way.

1st post is wrong to suggest it should be forgotten, 2nd is wrong to imply it should be *the* language. It simply is. Or was. As history shall tell. Still, a little education helps a lot; but an explanation of functional coding would prove quite useful to the budding Scheme / LISP / Haskell / CAML (my preferred language) programmer. Even more helpful when it points out where *not* to use them.
