Hi Anik, > I just want to know, if there is any book that covers PicoLisp from it's > fundamental concepts to advanced level?
Probably not to that extend. As "real" books there is only PicoLisp-Works and PicoLisp-by-Example by Thorsten Jolitz (perhaps a bit outdated by now). The online references of PicoLisp try to cover the fundamental concepts in http://software-lab.de/doc/ref.html, and also some of the more advanced levels. > What are the differences between Newlisp and PicoLisp?

So I must say that despite I do not have a deeper knowledge of NewLisp, from what I read I do not think that it should be called a Lisp. It is more a scripting language with Lisp syntax. Its internals, memory model and behavior are different from what I expect from a Lisp: There are no cons-cells, no bignums, no garbage collection, no sharing of (sub)lists, no circular structures - in my opinion the things which make up the real power of Lisp. Even multiple variables pointing to the same object are not allowed. An advantage of NewLisp is that it runs also on Windows, while PicoLisp requires a POSIX compatible system. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
