There's only a little bunch of supporters. I | wonder about it's future. you just described the music I like, as well. somehow, I enjoy what's already there and support artists who create the music I like, instead of wondering about its future. I think that's how it will _have_ a future. | But you know the pains of creating big LISP applications. I know the pain of creating big applications in C, and creating big Lisp applications is a breeze _in_comparison_. however, nothing great is ever easy. everything worth doing takes a lot of hard work and causes pain for the creators. that's why it's important not to waste hard work and pain on that which isn't worth doing, and _that_ is the lesson many have yet to learn. | You'll always come to a point where there is a need of connecting to | C/C++ processes and defforeigning to C/C++ clients for some server | processes isn't exactly what I'd call a clean solution. What I want is a | standard for doing so, not proprietary ACL or anything else. why doesn't C and C++ come with a standard way to interface to Lisp? #:Erik -- http://www.naggum.no/spam.html is about my spam protection scheme and how to guarantee that you reach me. in brief: if you reply to a news article of mine, be sure to include an In-Reply-To or References header with the message-ID of that message in it. otherwise, you need to read that page.
