|rahul||there's no standard for simula|
|v0|d||who runs at 2 TFlops? i though electron would not go over 8ghz.|
|rahul||v0|d: electrons aren't what powers electrical circuits.|
|_deepfire||EULAChiatDay, a synonym for "less effect for more resources wasted"?|
|EULAChiatDay||_deepfire: RSS XML KFC MICHAEL-JACKSON|
|dsteuber||Hmmm. 10% of a huge file is still pretty big.|
|rahul||v0|d: photons do, electrons merely provide the electrical charge that gets moved|
|EULAChiatDay||_deepfire: theres no such thing...its all about... the people in the end|
|dsteuber||I don't believe in photons I can't see.|
|gigamonkey||Anyone here sitting at a non-SLIME REPL?|
|dsteuber||I sometimes go into CLisp's command line.|
But not right now.
|rahul||phao: although lisp had the other OOP aspects since the 50s|
|gigamonkey||I'm wondering if say Lispworks or Allegro give you any indication that you've typed return in the middle of an expression the way SLIME does.|
|tcr||gigamonkey: Note that SLIME does only so if the sexp is not correctly balanced.|
|EULAChiatDay||gigamonkey: Both IDEs suck so much|
|gigamonkey||tcr: That's what I mean by "in the middle".|
But I take your point--if you've already got a full expression and you hit return in the middle it sends it.
Which I sometime find annoying.
|rahul||I think C-RET will insert a literal newline|
or some modifier...
|tcr||rahul: Close, C-j it is.|
|dsteuber||I hate when C-c C-c is ignored.|
|phao||rahul: so 1959.. correct?|
|dsteuber||Or maybe my lack of system memory is bogging things down|
|EULAChiatDay||programming is hard. i am stupid. i wish i were a well paid actor. waaaaa mum, dad i hate you!|
|rahul||phao: at least, lisp functions were polymorphic back then. there were no macros to separate the different morphs from each other|
|dsteuber||That was the problem. Big long delay.|
|rahul||phao: the theoretical underpinnings were there in the language to do OOP, it just required someone to come up with the paradigm to find out a good syntax for expressing such programs|
so, since lisp was made it can 'suport' oop?
|rahul||I guess the introudction of defstruct was essential|
|antifuchs||I say it was typecase (:|
|rahul||not sure when that happened|
|antifuchs||thanks for the texinfoified iterate manual, loliveira!|
|rahul||antifuchs: that gives you polymorphism, but not encapsulation (with strong types) or inheritance|
|antifuchs||rahul: heh. in brucio mode, I'd argue that this is only one macro away (:|
