About the Book

The theme of this installment of Read-Eval-Print-λove is: diversity.

  • Section 1 is a Koan-style dialog between the Master Macrologist Π無 and one or more of his students (macrolytes).
  • Section 2 talks about what defines a Lisp.
  • Section 3 is about Fluchtpunkt Lisps.

  • Section 4 is about macros and is entitled "A language that doesn't let you affect the way it thinks is not worth growing"
  • Section 5 is a review of "Land of Lisp"
  • Section 6 contains fun stuff like links, pictures and bombastic statements about the computing industry and programming languages.
