It's time to learn Scheme

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on April 04, 2008 09:32 PM
For those who don't/can't/won't understand LISP are doomed to reinvent it.

1. All compilers generate lisp - just look at the intermediate code tree fed to the opimizer, it is LISP in disguise.
2. Look at HTML... It too is LISP in disguise - the html tags themselves are lisp functions, with the corresponding end tags the close parenthises.
3. Look at SGML.... same thing.
4. Look at XML... same thing.
