Subject: Re: Question: Lisp's power points From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Fri, 12 Oct 2001 22:16:28 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Rolf Wester | Could you please give me some examples showing in what respect Lisp has a | _much_ higher level of abstraction. Special variables leaps to mind as the obvious first choice, more obvious than closures, the Lisp object reader and writer, the type hierarchy and dynamic types, the entire condition system, macros, compiler-macros, etc, which I just mention in no particular order. Of course, if your point is to gripe about the choice of "much", you will never be satisifed with any answer I could give you, anyway, so either you accept this or you do not. And if you had had a real argument, it would have been expressed properly, so I am inclined to believe you are just trolling and will not respond to any further trolling-like responses you choose to post, but please feel free to argue your case if you have one. /// -- My hero, George W.
