Synopsis: The defacto standard - a must-have for all LISP programmers.
In this greatly expanded edition of the defacto standard, you'll learn about the nearly 200 changes already made since original publication - and find out about gray areas likely to be revised later. Written by the Vice- Chairman of X3J13 (the ANSI
committee responsible for the standardization of Common Lisp) and co-developer of the language itself, the new edition contains the entire text of the first edition plus six completely new chapters. They cover: - CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System, with new features to support function overloading and object-oriented programming, plus complete technical specifications * Loops, a powerful control structure for multiple variables * Conditions, a generalization of the error signaling mechanism * Series and generators * Plus other subjects not part of the ANSI standards but of interest to professional programmers. Throughout, you'll find fresh examples, additional clarifications, warnings, and tips - all presented with the author's customary vigor and wit.
Review: This is the Lisp programmers' bible. If you need to know the official specification, every function defined in Common Lisp can be found in here somewhere. Anyone vaguely serious about programming in Lisp for extended periods of time should keep a copy of this book for reference. However, note that while this book is clearly written, it is not an introduction to programming in Lisp-- Common Lisp: The Language only offers the language specification.
