Re: Lisp

Which is a preffered lisp compiler on Linux?

Re: Lisp

Agnishom, which dialect are you talking about?

Re: Lisp

I do not know much. I installed the package clisp which possibly stands for common lisp

Re: Lisp

CLISP and Clojure are the most commonly used ones.

Also, I think Lisp can be accessed through Maxima.

Re: Lisp

Yes, you can use lisp through maxima.

Re: Lisp

Then, there is scheme too

Re: Lisp

There are about 20 dialects that I know of. Though common and scheme are the most popular.

Prolog?

Prolog is not a dialect of Lisp.

Re: Lisp

No. We are first going over first and second order logic.

Re: Lisp

Unfortunately, no. It is among the two last that they teach, next to SQL. We begin with Pascal, then C++, ASM and then these two.

Re: Lisp

It should be something like Prolog, Pascal, ASM, C++, SQL.

Re: Lisp

What use is C++? Why not language x? The attractive-ness depends on the programmer. I, for one, have a love for OCaml which is, I must say, an extraordinary language.

C++ is very fast and supports all the feature that make the purists very happy.

Still, can you describe a real-life situation when you will want to use Prolog?
