Subject: [Lisp] Lisp Meeting, March 14th 7:00 at Trinity
Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, March 14th from 7:00 to
9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Matt Knox presents "nyclisp: An Urban(e) Lisp for the Lazy and Static"
nyclisp (pronounced "Nice Lisp") is an interesting language
falling squarely between Scheme and Common Lisp in it's
avoidance of collisions when combining lazy evaluation and
In a nutshell, it has:
* 13 primitives
* no special-forms
* both macros and types are first-class objects
* utilizes Algo-like thunking by separating argument
handling from evaluation for function dispatch
This results in a language that is both more static AND more
dynamic than both Common Lisp and Scheme.
Matt Knox is a polyglot developer who has been active in LispNYC for 2
years, and is pretty sure he enjoys being in way over his head.
