Book Description – Practical Common Lisp pdf
Practical Common Lisp pdf – This is the first book to present Lisp as a real-world language. Practical Common Lisp is a comprehensive introduction to Common Lisp that gives you a broad grasp of the language’s features and how they interact. Practical examples, such as the core of a spam filter and a web application for browsing MP3s and streaming them over the Shoutcast protocol to any standard MP3 client program, take up more than a third of the book (e.g., iTunes, XMMS, or WinAmp). Author Peter Seibel shows how to build a small but adaptable in-memory database, analyze binary files, and develop a unit test framework in 26 lines of code in additional “practical” chapters.
This book is the symmetrical counterpart to the broader Common Lisp literature collection. You’ve learned the mathematical foundations and the syntax of the language; now it’s time to bring it all together. Seibel keeps the ‘practical’ in the title right from the start: you develop a quick, basic, yet strong and enlightening music cd database solution. This database contains an immediate explanation of the ‘format’ call, rather than the standard “print vs. prin1,” and even the ability to save and load the database from a file.
About the Author
Peter Seibel is a writer who became a programmer or a programmer who became a writer. He got tempted by the web after earning an undergraduate degree in English and briefly working as a journalist. He hacked Perl for Mother Jones magazine and Organic Online in the early 1990s. As an early employee at WebLogic, he was a part of the Java revolution and later taught Java programming at UC Berkeley Extension. Peter was a childhood stockholder in Symbolics, Inc. and is one of the few second-generation Lisp programmers on the planet.
He took a year off from his job as the architect of a Java-based transactional messaging system in 2003 to hack Lisp. Instead, he spent two years creating Practical Common Lisp, which won the Jolt Productivity Award. Coders at Work, a collection of Q&A conversations with fifteen renowned programmers and computer scientists, is his most recent book.
