Overview

Now available in paperback—

Lisp is often thought of as an academic language, but it need not be. This is the first book that introduces Lisp as a language for the real world.

Practical Common Lisp presents a thorough introduction to Common Lisp, providing you with an overall understanding of the language features and how they work. Over a third of the book is devoted to practical examples, such as the core of a spam filter and a web application for browsing MP3s and streaming them via the Shoutcast protocol to any standard MP3 client software (e.g., iTunes, XMMS, or WinAmp). In other "practical" chapters, author Peter Seibel demonstrates how to build a simple but flexible in-memory database, how to parse binary files, and how to build a unit test framework in 26 lines of code.

A noise sounds in the brush. A three moon kits with thick snow-white fur and a bushy tail and rare bright sapphire blue eyes sits. She has ice and snow powers. An ice snowflake design is on the snow underneath her, and iceacles point up from the ground, pointing away, like a barrier. She sighs, crying silently. She knows she will never be wanted.

"That's fine," she said. "I was only coming to tell you I wished to keep Jayclan alone. Have a nice day!" She padded out.
