It's going to be very hard to beat macros that are designed for a language in which programs are syntactically trees rather than token streams, and data is syntactically the same as a program. (Josh beat me to posting it, but it was an independent origin.) > I'd expected Steve to come in on the Lisp side of things, but it > appears he may have gone to the Dark Side of "ALGOL-like or > nothing." :-) ^^^^^ He don't know me very well. Hihihihihihi! as Bugs Bunny would say. Lisp is a great language, but it's hard to beat Python for teaching Chinese students who majored in Japanese translation in college how to code. I'm not Gollum, I don't need one ring to rule them all. PS Sorry about all the old fart ObRefs. There's been a lot going around in my Twitter and podcasts and I envy them.
