Morphing (was: About CONTINUATIONS)

I agree wholeheartedly! This point should REALLY be stressed. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:

Hi, Chaz, I don't know if it's still in print, but a *very* good introduction to LISP, requiring only standard programming skills, is in _Functional_Programming_Application_and_Implementation_ by Peter Henderson, Prentice-Hall, 1980 ISBN: 0-13-331579-7 It introduces functional programming, contrasts it with imperative programming, designs and implements LispKit LISP, and adds some interesting features (e.g. lazy evaluation, nondeterminism...) I'd recommend that one first, followed by SICP, of course. _Structure_and_Interpretation_of_Computer_Programs_ Abelson, Sussman, Sussman MIT Press, 1985 ISBN: 0-262-01077-1 or McGraw-Hill ISBN: 0-07-000-422-6 which should be on every programmer's bookshelf (well-thumbed with lots of bookmarks sticking out of it... ;-) -jn- chaz wrote:

Hello Chaz, Just to add another 2 cents worth of language search about implementing Scheme or Lisp with REBOL, I submit you the following Web pointers to some available documentation about this language's dialects - These are extracted from a (Long google search : 1.

WOW. Thanks for the links. Surely there will be a beginning can be found in one of these! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gerard Cote" <[gerardcote--sympatico--ca]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Cc: "Gérard Côté (Globetrotter)" <[gerardcote--globetrotter--net]>

Lisp in Small Pieces is the name of the book you want. It's an excellent book on writing various Lisps with source code in Scheme. Converting this to Rebol shouldn't be too difficult. Chris.

Hi I found this site on scheme. . You can download it entirely. I did know anything about this language before. I discovered it has many many things that reminds me Rebol. Patrick

Okey dokey then, that's the second recommendation on this list for Lisp in Small Pieces. This weekend I'll go the public library and request that on "Interlibrary Loan"

Or... 'Programming and Metaprogramming in Scheme' Jon Pearce which teaches you how to implement any paradigm in Scheme, incluiding.... Scheme. Nice intro to programming as well. --Maarten On Thursday 28 February 2002 10:48, you wrote:

yeah. vector (and dotted pair) seems similar to block define seems similar to func
