Subject: Re: "Well, I want to switch over to replace EMACS LISP with Guile." From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 16 Oct 2002 18:13:32 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Thomas F. Burdick | Out of curiosity, have you used Java much? Not for production purposes. I do not think I will want to do that. I would rather hire cheap programmers who can write Java code than do it myself, but I actually believe it is a good language for its purposes and I have read a lot on Java. I want to program in Common Lisp, not Java, myself, but if I were to hire a bunch of people to get something done, I would want them to use something that was not braindamaged like C++ and which I could be reasonably sure was not all buggy like C programs are. | Maybe the Java way is a worse fit to my brain than it is to most peoples, | but I find the standard libraries sometimes get in the way to the extent | that it might be easier to just reimplement what I want in a less-crazy | manner. Well, people should not use tools that do not fit the way they think. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
