Subject: [Lisp] Lisp meeting, April 8th 7:00 at Trinity
Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, April 8th from 7:00
to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Rahul Jain Presents: DefDoc, A TEX-inspired, Lisp-based document
Lisp was originally designed for symbolic processing. Syntax
manipulation is the most commonly used aspect of Lisp's symbolic
processing capabilities currently. The defmacro form provided by
Common Lisp allows one to define new language forms which have full
access to the symbolic information of the code within their
bodies. Within the macro definiton, the entire facilities of the
Common Lisp language may be used, including any other functions or
macros you have defined. This model is extremely powerful, and many
advanced techniques for using it are explained in Paul Graham's book,
Directions to Trinity:
602 E. 9th St. & Ave B., on Tompkins Square Park
From N,R,Q,W (8th Street NYU Stop) and the 4,5 (Astor Street Stop):
Walk East 4 blocks on St. Marks, cross Thomkins Square Park.
From F&V (2nd Ave Stop):
Walk E one or two blocks, turn north for 8 short blocks
From L (1st Ave Stop):
Walk E one block, turn sounth for 5 short blocks
The M9 bus line drops you off at the doorstep and the M15 is near get
off on St. Marks & 1st)
To get there by car, take the FDR (East River Drive) to Houston then
go NW till you're at 9th & B. Week-night parking isn't bad at all,
but if you're paranoid about your Caddy or in a hurry, there is a
parking garage on 9th between 1st and 3rd Ave.
