Subject: Re: Why is Scheme not a Lisp? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2002 23:33:46 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Dorai Sitaram | I'll admit I don't want those epithets any more than the next guy, Rahul, | but I find I cannot honestly alter my opinion that Scheme is a Lisp. But what is this "Lisp" that Scheme is? I maintain that it is a concept evacuated by evolllution. What is left in this concept for you? Please remember that you have to accomodate D*lan users who argue the same way Scheme users do about the supposed Lisp nature of their pet language. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
