Subject: Re: what lisp can do that C can't do From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Fri, 24 May 2002 11:38:45 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Barry Watson <Barry.Watson@uab.ericsson.se> | I don't think you're thinking "big " enough. Just because something is | standardised in a language doesn't mean it cannot be done in another | language. I'm not criticising the way it is done in Lisp. I'm just | pointing out it is doable in C. That's all. Relaxez vous! I think you have shown us something interesting. You think Common Lisp only offers what you can do in C, so naturally you can do in C what you think Common Lisp offers. This is not quite the same as doing in C what Common Lisp offers to a Common Lisp programmer. -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none. In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief. 70 percent of American adults do not understand the scientific process.
