Subject: Re: Why Lisp is not popular. No GUI? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 01 Dec 2002 09:49:25 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * firstname.lastname@example.org (Pratibha) | Are there any examples, that we can look to for ideas or guidance, of | "intelligently designed" command-line interfaces designed for end-users | (as opposed to developers --- I assume that it is not being suggested | that a Lisp real-eval-print loop or Genera-like command line or an emacs | inferior Lisp buffer or a Unix shell be surfaced to the end-user, but | something that is more application-specific, right.) Why do you assume all this? And more importantly, /how/ did you arrive at all these assumptions? I need some evidence that you understand what a protocol is before I want to explain the principles here further. E.g., are you knowledgeable of how the Emacs command loop works? -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
