Subject: Re: function and lambda, again From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2002 01:04:44 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Drew McDermott <email@example.com> | (It should also have occurred to them that the function named 'car' | should be the *value* of 'car', thus eliminating 'function' entirely, as | in Scheme, but that's another argument.) Some of us really, really *hate* Lisp1, and loathe every other programming language that forces us to conflate clearly distinct namespaces. | All other functional languages get this right, including Scheme. Common Lisp and all the natural languages I know get it right. This kind of stupid troll is why Scheme freaks have their own forum. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
