Distributed LISP is a new scripting language inspired by Lisp (a minimal, fast Lisp interpreter). If you have ever written an installation script for the Commodore Installer and its Lisp-like language, you know how Lisp programs look like: a lot of parantheses but, on the bright side, no semicolons ;) Features: implemented as library (ie. can be flushed if not needed), fast bytecode compiler, cache for tokenized code. Disributed LISP is Rexx-enabled so that Lisp programs can be used for automation of other applications. A script written in Distributed LISP is two to three times faster than the same script written in Rexx, on 68k platforms. Web site and download:  Download

MorphOS users can download an experimental PPC binary to replace the 68k binary in the archive (experimental in the sense that it is a stand-alone interpreter binary, not a library):

Distributed LISP is complemented by a Lisp mode for GoldED Studio (envLSP10), available on the GoldED web site, providing syntax highlighting and online help.

The biggest problem is that LISP is awful language :) I'm not going to use it unless someone pays me lots of money :)

Your comment suggests that you do not know what you are talking about. It's easy to learn and has a very clean structure. It is quite nice for scripting. That is why is is often picked for that purpose. Emacs is a famous example. Is is not good for application development nor is it intended for that purpose.

Quite a lot games out there use LISP for internal scripting.

LISP is also a commonly used language for A.I. in games.

It's the old "if you only have a hammer, every problem tends to look like a nail" thing. Each language has (hopefully) one or more strength and (very probably) one or more weaknesses.

If you have a problem, it's very likely it can be solved in perl or c, but once in a while you will very likely need something different. LISP actually has a few VERY good ideas. Unfortunately I'm not a lispian.

Recursive and overloaded macros, anyone?

Lisp is far more suitable (than most common programming languages that i know) for doing compile-time programming ;)

Would there be any profit in coding in LISP or just scientific uses?
