Subject: Re: Using Lisp to Call another program in linux? From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 10 Nov 2002 18:47:44 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Scott Schwartz | My impression is that the Common Lisp community wants a sort of Lisp | Machine Shell, and to ignore or hide the real system. Yes. That is what portability means. | In contrast, I couldn't find any mention of POSIX in the Common Lisp | Hyperspec, and lisp implementors usually demote native functions to | something you access via a "foreign function interface". That's all very | toy-like, albeit a very big and resource intensive toy. Amazing. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
