Keeping me honest
Friday, March 17, 2006

Christophe Rhodes sent me an e-mail to correctly chide me for several misstatements in my recent "modern" Lisp post. Lisp has always been case sensitive; it just usually transforms case to upper so that it doesn't feel that way. I knew this but I was being lazy in my writing. He also takes umbrage at the term "modern" and, to be honest, I've never liked it either. Having a Lisp that talks more easily to other languages is a good thing but that doesn't make it necessarily better or more new. Thanks for keeping me honest, Christophe!
