I am new to PicoLisp and Lisp in general.
I know that PicoLisp is not Common Lisp and is much closer to the
original Lisp. However it seems most books are Common Lisp oriented.
While browsing Amazon I was wondering if any of these books might be
good to get a good understanding of Lisp.
LISP 1.5 Programmer's Manual 2nd Edition
by Michael I. Levin (Author), John McCarthy (Contributor)
Interpreting Lisp: Programming and Data Structures 2nd ed. Edition
by Gary D. Knott
The Little LISPer:
by Matthias Felleisen, Daniel P. Friedman
Build Your Own Lisp <http://buildyourownlisp.com/>
Learn C and build your own programming language in 1000 lines of code!
by Daniel Holden
I think that Build Your Own Lisp sounds interesting. It seems like a
good way to learn some C and get an understanding of Lisp at the same
time. But it would be nice to have an opinion if available from people
who are already familiar with PicoLisp.
I do not mind buying old and used books to learn. However, I do believe
it would be of great value for growing the community if there were
current available resources. I have looked at the mailing list archives
and website. I am working my way through PicoLisp Works.
What about SICP? Does it bring value to a beginning PicoLisper?
Please feel free to suggest books or other resources which may not be
mentioned here. I look forward to hearing the wisdom of the community.
