Common Lisp (CL) is a modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance, compiled, ANSI-standardized, prominent descendant of the long-running family of Lisp programming languages. The CL Hello World program reads as follows: (print "Hello World! ") Hello World! First steps — installation and introductory tutorials Basic topics — lists, functions and macros Advanced topics Beyond ANSI Common Lisp — Non-official standards External libraries — A sampling of the multitude of Common Lisp libraries Implementation Issues — Using Common Lisp programs in your every day work Case Studies in CL — A collection of involved examples Reference - The language's reference. Limp - Lisp IDE. Limp's goal is to provide a compelling alternative to Slime for Vim.

Limp - Lisp IDE

It will let you send s-expressions to a running Lisp. It will do this for you: * booting/attaching/detaching a Lisp (SBCL) from Vim or a command-line script, optionally specifying a core; * send code to the attached Lisp (and limited introspection, see Help Describe); * automatically close brackets; * ease s-exp navigation and (some) transposing; * highlight current form under the cursor; * lookup documentation from the HyperSpec; * complete (some) names. Quickstart (better version with screenshots in the documentation): In a file with "filetype=lisp" set, hit <F12> to invoke Limp and start a Lisp or connect to an existing. (defun hello-world (who) (format t "Hello, ~A! Place the cursor at any location inside the code and type <Leader>et (Evaluate Top) to send your code to the running Lisp.

Hit <F12> again to see the results! (Full list of key bindings at ) To test it, type :Eval (hello-world '|Limp User|) Parallel Programming in Common Lisp. To kick off a series of posts about parallel programming in Common Lisp, let's first review what's available.

Parallel Programming in Common Lisp

Two models for parallel programming First, there are basically two models for parallel programming:Parallelism based on threads (a.k.a. shared-memory model). Multiple threads are spawned by a single process. This is the most common approach in a multi-core machine. For example, we can spawn one computational thread per core. Threads in Common Lisp When discussing threads, we first have to distinguish between native threads and non-native threads. Some languages such as Java provide a standardized threading library.

Here's a table of threading support for most of the current Common Lisp implementations. So, native thread support is not universal. Message-Passing in Common Lisp Message passing is less commonly used than threading in most languages (with the notable exception of Erlang).
