Subject: Re: Question: Lisp's power points From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sun, 14 Oct 2001 21:46:28 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * firstname.lastname@example.org | What would be nice to have would be "pithy" examples of code to | exemplify these sorts of things. Then you go write them. In my experience, examples illustrating an unknown concept usually mislead people. Besides, writing examples that actually work to illustrate _concepts_ takes a lot of time and effort. May I tell you that publication here is not exactly _rewarded_ when you only complain about people not doing enough to satisfy you? Why not just write and publish the stuff you missed yourself if it would be so nice? | I think the world could use an "essay" or "book" that describes 7 | different applications of readtables, for instance, sort of paralleling | Keene's book on CLOS. Again, feel free to write it yourself. It is quite enjoyable until you get complaints from people who _demand_ more without any encouragement. /// -- The United Nations before and after the leadership of Kofi Annan are two very different organizations. The "before" United Nations did not deserve much credit and certainly not a Nobel peace prize. The "after" United Nations equally certainly does. I applaud the Nobel committee's choice.
