Oh oh ... Alex, your conclusion is not necessary true. If most are silent that has not to mean, they conclude with Henrik. At least me, if I do not like something, or I am feeling it is dead, I will unsubscribe. The lack of libraries may be a problem from time to time, but PicoLisp has also to offer a lot, like its DB with Pilog, its Web-Framework, its simplicity. Often people need a language that allow for quick and dirty development. So lacking a library could be a show-stopper for them, as they are not willing to spend time to develop what they need. They want to throw together basic components to build a new app they can use. Perhaps for them, PicoLisp is not an alternative. But if you want to develop a coherent, portable app, with storage backed up by a DB with an elegant query language (Pilog) that does not need much resources -- PicoLisp may count in! I am interested in PicoLisp as you know. I've tried to use it for my in-house project. Unfortunately I couldn't not, not cause by lacking any library, but as my co-workers do not know Lisp and are very reluctant to learn yet another language beside C++, Java and Ruby used for most of our tools. So this may be another reason -- PicoLisp is a Lisp. You know, that language with a lot of silly parentheses ... ;-) Anyway, happy new year and please keep up with your nice language. It is not mainstream, but it has its place!!! Ciao, chi. -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
