Likewise! I am a system administrator. I first thought of Lisp as a suitable language when the White Glove Linux distributions from www.all.net included a Lisp interpreter, mostly for those who wanted to do weird socket stuff from a command line. Then came a 2600 issue that had an article on newLISP, and I came across PicoLisp because of a post in lambda-the-ultimate. So I use it for small stuff too and am in the process of developing a more serious internal project with it (people who hate LDAP reinvent it using their favorite programming language).. Granted, the typical system administrator / postmaster has not read SICP, nor do they fancy Prolog, but then again many use Emacs and I do not. -- http://gr.linkedin.com/in/yiorgos -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
