Why newLISP?

Filed under: newLISP — newlisper @ 12:39

LISP is one of the oldest programming languages in the world, dating
back to the 1950s. Remarkably it has survived to the present day, and it’s still alive and kicking, athough it’s been eclipsed by newer languages such as Ruby and Python.

newLISP is a version of LISP that concentrates on getting jobs done –
not something that people normally think of when they think
of LISP!

Here’s a few good things about newLISP:

– it’s easy to install
– it’s quick
– it’s open-source
– it’s cross-platform
– it has useful built-in tools and libraries
– it’s web-capable
– it’s well documented

and it really annoys the LISP purists (always a good thing to challenge
the status quo).

So, oil those parenthesis keys on your keyboard, and start newLISPing!
