  • 2. Suggestions for Beginner's Lisp?
    OK, I've read Paul Graham's "Hackers & Painters" and I'm intrigued by Lisp. I'm currently an Access/VB programmer who feels stifled and would like to branch out. Paul's site lists several dozen Lisp implementations, of which several look like they run natively on Windows: * newLisp * MIT Scheme / Chez Scheme * Larceny * Corman Lisp * EdScheme / PLT Scheme (learning oriented?) Beyond learning, I'm interested in working with databases, and trying to explore web services. Do any of you have suggestions or experience with any of these implementations, or are there others I should look at? Thanks, -Ken
  • 3. Sandboxing?
    Is there any implementation of Common Lisp or Scheme (or any other Lisp family language) that allows sandboxing of runtime-generated code? I'm not referring to security so much as resource consumption; specifically, I'd be looking to be able to say, at runtime, "compile and run this chunk of code provided it doesn't overflow the stack [not using a stack at all would be even better], and takes no more than X bytes of heap and Y cycles of CPU time". (The job I have in mind would be a variant of genetic programming, so efficiency of compiled code would also be a relevant issue.) Thanks, -- "Always look on the bright side of life."

  • 4. My newbie question
    Don't bother answering the question I just asked... Hehe, I'm so damn stupid. Remember that Lisp is confusing for beginners! :)

franz-lisp for Linux

Postby Tux Wonder-Dog » Fri, 08 Apr 2005 21:03:23 GMT

I've downloaded franz-lisp for *BSD and am wanting to compile it and run it
on my Linux system - I _am_ a *BSD user, it just so happens that all my
*BSD run on SIMH's VAX, or bochs, not the hardware itself.

Has anyone compiled franz-lisp on Linux before?  If so, any hints, advice,

2.newbie quesion: franz lisp emacs setting

Hi everyone,
I have installed the "franz lisp" 6.2 version and try to use GNU emacs
20.7 as its input and output. But the setting doesn't work. When I
entry "alt-m:common-lisp" in emacs, the result is always "no match"

According to the manual, I have set as follows:
1. set the "HOME" variable, the value is "C:\Program
   when I entry "alt-m:common-lisp" in emacs, one file named
".saves-1968-ETECH058~" will be created in the above "eli/examples"
directory. Therefore I think the 1st step is correct.

2. Modify the "emacs.el" file in the "examples" directory, the content
is as follows,

3. refer to the "comp.lang.lisp" archives, I have add two line into
the file
(setq fi:common-lisp-image-name "mlisp.dxl")
(setq fi:common-lisp-directory "C:/Program Files/acl62-trial/")
(setq fi:common-lisp-host "etech058")

Could you help me to solve the problem?

Thank you in advance.

3.Franz Lisp

Does anyone know if it's possible to get one's hands on a copy of
Franz Lisp? Ray Toy's question about strings got me wondering about
their implementation in this old dialect. Any of the manuals, the
source, and/or an executable version would be interesting, although
I'd be especially interested in the latter.

Anyone have any pointers? (*cough* *cough* ... anyone from Franz, for
