Subject: Re: Little doubts with "if" clause From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sun, 02 Dec 2001 20:24:02 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Ed L Cashin | I get the impression that while the language itself will have less | baked into it, there will be repositories ("huge libraries") of code | for the user to take advantage of. --Like perl's CPAN. My impression of the CPAN is that it is a whole bunch of code of very dubious and uncertain quality, and not at all what I would want to base anything on in a real project. It is fine for the kinds of things that Perl is used for. Why anyone would want a piece of that market eludes me. Perl should reign supreme in that corner and not cause anything else to be polluted by its mind-set. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you.

The world is changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
