Subject: Re: Lisp is alive From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1996/09/24 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> [Juliusz Chroboczek] | The point is that you do not need to have Lisp syntax in order to have | macros, read and pprint. However, read and pprint are trivial to | implement with Lisp syntax, and might be a little more bothersome with | infix syntax. Not actually difficult, just unpleasant. Of course, some of us do remember when Dylan had both a prefix and an infix syntax and transformation between them was supposed to be straight-forward. And I do wonder what was actually gained by dropping the prefix syntax. #\Erik -- Those who do not know Lisp are doomed to reimplement it.
