Dear Joe, Thank you for your valuable suggestion to start with even smaller PicoLisp.

I've probably read it 10+ times and learn something new after each reading.

This I am saying from my experience in maintaining my Porteus Linux system. PicoLisp matches Porteus in many ways, minimalist, easy to maintain, speed etc. PicoLisp philosophy of minimal orthogonal design makes it ideal for this down to bare metal approach. However I am just a novice lisp programmer who would love to invest significant effort into learning through using picoLisp. I shall be grateful if Alexander and/or other senior experienced people be kind enough to outline various components of implementing picoLisp. Such as: knowledge level of lisp, assembly and C (reference books, links etc). Kindly indicate steps to start learning how to implement and maintain picoLisp. -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
