Everyone has taken a LISP course one in their lives?

Lisp is often thought of as an academic language, but it need not be. Generally speaking, I prefer scheme’s syntax than common lisp’s.


For the complete bookstore browsing clmmon, you can read the letter to the reader that appears on the back cover of the treeware edition of the book. Mark Pilgrim’s ‘Dive into Python’ was that way for me. Oct 11, TK Keanini rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just because you can take the time, oisp, paper, and electricity to print out the book on the department laser printer, doesn’t mean it’s cost effective, or even a good idea.

Staying away from PDFs is considered a healthy practice. I wouldn’t sweat comprehending it too much, but it would at least give me an overall view of the terrain before I went into books like Land of Lisp or other books on functional programming before coming back and constantly referencing this book as I was getting my sea legs going. Just practiccal a python or a ruby book and get on with it.


This page, and the pages it links pracyical, contain text of the Common Lisp book Practical Common Lisp published by Apress These pages now contain the final text as it appears in the book.

Actually a very powerful language that I would enjoy trying, though I’m learning Clojure right now instead. The cold hearted bastards would have downloaded the book anyway from some third-world website wouldn’t have paid for the book in any circumstance. If you find errors in these pages, please send email to book gigamonkeys.

One of the clearest books on programming with LISP and indeed dynamic programming in general. By far the best book on the topic. Mar 09, Dmitry Petrov rated it it was amazing Shelves: Alot of people here have been using the that apgess for a while.

The PDF is nice as it has the book in one file easy searching that can be used offline.

It would be more fun to code in scheme. Want to Read saving….

Please follow proper reddiquette. The author seemed happy to talk about theory and esoteric concerns in the footnotes, which I chose to read and sometimes become overwhelmed by, but this was an option I had.

Printing with suitable duplexing gives you folios that are an opportunity for even more fun in binding them into a book. Seibel does an excellent job at showing practical uses for the language.

Link to this page from your web site. In other “practical” chapters, author Peter Seibel demonstrates how to build a simple but flexible in-memory database, how to parse binary files, and how to build a unit test framework in 26 lines of code.

I started this book several times, but always abandoned it after a couple of chapters. Eventually my usage frequency organizational system pushed it five feet from my desk where shelving it no longer required walking. If there is no code in your link, it probably doesn’t belong here.

Direct links to app demos unrelated to programming will be removed. Arkadia Getheren rated it liked it Apr 14, This book made me a better programmer, and is leading me into exploring more of Clojure, the “no body ever got fired for deploying on the JVM” Lisp. The bit of disappointment for me was when I got the understanding the scale of legacy Common Lisp has in it’s standrad labrary as well as in the development process, package management etc. Come on, guys, that was just a friendly eye-roll at the craziness that is programming.
