About this site

Filed under: newLISP — newlisper @ 22:47

This site is dedicated to newLISP, which is a fun, free, easy-to-use Lisp-like scripting language available for most current operating systems. The posts are mainly short articles exploring various aspects of the language, and there are also some occasional attempts at humour and perhaps fun too. I’m not a programmer, so don’t expect to see any serious programming voodoo here.

The site is not associated with the developer of newLISP, Lutz Mueller, who can be found at the official newLISP web site.

Go away if…

If you’re a fundamentalist Lisp user, a newLISP-hater, or are just not interested in exploring newLISP, then please don’t bother to read anything here, and please don’t waste your time and mine by complaining about how newLISP isn’t a proper Lisp, isn’t as good as (insert name of some other Lisp here), doesn’t have Feature X or Facility Y, blah blah blah. You are wasting your (presumably) valuable time on a pointless and some would say objectionable activity – go and do something more useful with your time.

If you’re a spammer, don’t waste your time trying to get your comments published here. All comments are carefully reviewed before being posted, and I’m unlikely to approve yours, obviously. Also, your IP address will be added (possibly more than once) to the banned list, which means that sooner or later you won’t be able to load the site at all. It’s wasting much more of your time than mine. Again, please find something more useful to do. The world needs improving; try and do something to make it better.


This site is also a testing ground for newLISP code. It’s now powered by the speedy and generally awesome Dragonfly web framework. Before then, it used by my attempt at a ‘minimalist’ blogging application called The Parenthesis Engine. The Parenthesis Engine was a replacement for the previous newLISP blogging application which used to run this site, which has been mentioned before in these posts as the LambdaPress. The LambdaPress was based on a SQLite database, and is now obsolete. Some of the older posts reference some code excursions that are now meaningless, and not applicable to Dragonfly. Before then, the site was hosted on Blogger, and it’s still there, although all the old posts were migrated over.


There are a few files on the downloads page that you can have a look at. If you need any help with these, or wish to complain about the coding style, let me know or ask on the forums.
