Actually a very powerful language that I would enjoy trying, though I’m learning Clojure right now instead. I was, of course, making a joke about the printing instructions. I will keep I don’t feel that this is the right book if you are new to lisp. Youll start to make your own little program to do that and then you discover that it has been there all along. Though, I think euccastro has a good point. Finished the first 11 chapters.
Every chapter felt really short, and explained everything relatively tersely. Every software developer evolves during his career and that can be done by several ways, which are not really conflicting but it’s possible to get better with any of them not all.
HTML format which I greatly prefer. However, a short trip to the number box google machine will quickly bring these up. Copy and paste text, which a lot of PDF readers won’t do.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be aprress for you. For the complete bookstore browsing experience, you can read the letter to the reader that appears on the back cover of the treeware edition of the book.
I wish more books were written in this manner.
This page, and the pages it links to, contain text of the Common Lisp book Practical Common Lisp published by Apress These pages now contain the final text as it appears in the book. Once I’ve worked with a dead tree book for a while I can often turn to near the page I need, and from parctical quickly find the correct page.

Oct 03, Paul Elms marked it as to-read. If you’re on a Linux box, do “apropos pdf” and you’ll see a number of tools for converting the pdf to ascii or whatever.
It’s being given away free by its publisher Apress. Practical Common Lisp presents a thorough introduction to Common Lisp, providing you with an overall understanding of the language features and how they work.
This time I decided I won’t give up, and am quite happy I finally finished it.
Generally speaking, I prefer scheme’s syntax than common lisp’s. Then help spread the word. This is one of the better learn-a-language programming books I’ve seen.
It’s hard for me to gauge because I have programming languages including functional ones like Scheme under my belt already, but if you want to learn Common Lisp I’d definitely pick up this book as one of my first. However, pgactical short trip to the nu Practical Common Lisp is one of those classic Lisp books for parctical latest generation of hackers. 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.
Also Apress is one of those publishers where you just have to go out and buy the book once you’ve read a even a few chapters of the free text.
Come on, guys, that was just a friendly eye-roll at the craziness that is programming. Oh, “man -k” does pretty much the same thing as apropos, “man -K” searches all man pages for a specific string which is slow but can be handy at times. Link to this page from your web site. I read most of this book and skimmed some of the latter part, but found it excellent. Wait 5 to 10 minutes unless time eq “lunch” Goto first step unless book is finished.

Write a review on Amazon. Personally, I like buying dead tree versions, not only because they’re easier to read than digital copies, and not only because of the nice binding you get instead of having a giant pile of pages in a 3-ring binder if your printer punches holesbut also because I just like to support the publisher so they can continue publishing good books and paying authors to write them. Do you have something funny to share with fellow programmers? No one is claiming it hasn’t been.
Thanks to the high demand Apress has decided to do a 2nd printing. There are also portable electronic readers Sony Reader, Illiad out there that are rather useful to read these books with the look but not feel of paper.
So s he confuses me. In comparison clojure is designed perfectly including basic structures, concurrency support and standard library and common lisp community virtually does not exist if you comparing volume of things happening in clojure world. I especially liked who naturally author used macros applicationin the examples he pracyical. Highly practicsl for every programmer!!!
Mar 05, Joan rated it really liked it Shelves: Doing Every software developer evolves during his career and that can be done by several ways, which are not really conflicting but it’s possible to get better with any of them not all.
I started this book several times, but always abandoned it after a couple of chapters. The people who WANT the material practocal quickly become sick of reading the pdf and will gladly pony up the cash for the dead-trees version. I enjoy its practical materials. It could use some updating. Language defines thinking and it’s true not only about natural languages but also about programming ones.
