 OfficerHotpants hiwith nested lisp statements does it work from the inside out? or outside in? bromine well think about it(+ (+ 2 2) 3) OfficerHotpants i'm just wondering because in one of my classes there was a language (possibly prolog?) that worked from the outside in bromine it can hardly do the outer expression before it knows the value of the inner OfficerHotpants okay. just making surealso what does cddr do? bromine its like cdr OfficerHotpants whats the difference? bromine the cdr of the cdr levi_home OfficerHotpants: You can compose car and cdr by putting a's and d's between the c and r. So the car of a cdr is cadr, and the cdr of a cdr is cddr, etc. bromine this gets confusing for anything much over 4 extra lettress/lettres/letters beach good morning OfficerHotpants hifor me though, it's good night. midnight here in ohiois there a function in lisp to calculate the average of a list? if there is i would assume it would be called, average beach OfficerHotpants: you would have to write it yourself OfficerHotpants beach: no problem. just had to ask beach OfficerHotpants: (defun average (list) (/ (reduce #'+ list) (length list))) OfficerHotpants yeah. thats what i was thinking. so far LISP is pretty interestinghey, do you do AI programming? i'm assuming you do if you program in lisp beach OfficerHotpants: for the past few decades, we have written it "Lisp".OfficerHotpants: No, I write things like gsharp.minion: tell OfficerHotpants about Gsharp minion OfficerHotpants: look at Gsharp: Gsharp is a graphical, interactive score editing application for standard Music notation. http://www.cliki.net/Gsharp OfficerHotpants beach: whats gsharp?oh. interesting beach OfficerHotpants: and McCLIMminion: tell OfficerHotpants about McCLIM minion OfficerHotpants: have a look at McCLIM: McCLIM is Mike McDonald's Free and portable implementation of CLIM, the Common Lisp ueber-Graphics Toolkit and a Common Lisp Library. http://www.cliki.net/McCLIM beach minion: tell OfficerHotpants about Climacs minion OfficerHotpants: direct your attention towards Climacs: Climacs is an Emacs-like text editor written in Common Lisp. http://www.cliki.net/Climacs OfficerHotpants i know i'm going to get flamed for saying this but i was never a fan of emacsi'm a vim kinda guy beach OfficerHotpants: when Lisp was mainly used for AI, it as indeed written "LISP". Now that it is the most sophisticated object-oriented langauge around, people use it for anything. OfficerHotpants i was wondering because I hear python is pretty good for AI. i just wanted to know what you thought about that tritcheyMini_ OfficerHotpants: I use it to create web sites OfficerHotpants lisp or python?
