There's a great way to learn Lisp that, I think, will run on classic C= hardware http://ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/zcode/lists.z5 Infocom _did_ produce a "z5" interpreter. It's one of the later ones. In any case, lists.z5 is a Lisp tutorial wrapped up in the framework of a text adventure. I've run through it, top to bottom. You _can_ learn the rudiments of Lisp with it. Cheers, -ethan -- Visit "The Seventh Continent" http://penguincentral.com/penguincentral.html Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
