Hello, I just want to take an opportunity to introduce myself to the
I have for a long time been interested in learning a LISP, but was not
aware of one that was active and practical. I would research every few
years but never found one. I do not know how I missed finding PicoLisp.
But, I am glad to have found it.
I explored Clojure several years ago, but I just have a very hard time
embracing Java. When I opened a Clojure REPL and see the 3-400mbs of
ram. It was too much. And I looked again for some other active and
practical LISP. The only thing I can think of for not seeing or
remembering PicoLisp is if I encountered it when it was GPL. I attempt
to avoid almost any GPL software for development. I am very grateful
that you changed the license to MIT, otherwise I would still be looking.
I am not a professional programmer. But I have spent significant time
programming. I started with Prograph CPX in 1994. I then learned Python
and have dabbled with many things, but have spent most of my time with
I am really looking forward to learning PicoLisp and hope that I find
myself capable. It looks to be a very nice combination of features.
I love the idea of it being a simple LISP.
I love the idea of being able to learn most all of the system, libraries
I love the idea of having a complete application framework, language,
I love the fact that it is small, fast and efficient.
It looks like a place someone could make a home.
Thank you Alexander for blessing the world with your creation. I pray it
brings you many blessings in kind.
