This series of posts by @sjl is a true gem worth bookmarking. It describes a CHIP-8 emulator in Common Lisp whose techniques are applicable to other systems.

But the series is also a Lisp software design resource in disguise, as it presents a Domain-Specific Language for concisely and clearly describing machine architectures and instruction sets.

> We at #Symbolics were slow to acknowledge this. We believed our own “dogma” even as it became less true. It was embedded in our corporate culture. If you disputed it, your co-workers felt that you “just didn’t get it” and weren’t a member of the clan, so to speak. This stifled objective analysis. (This is a very easy problem to fall into — don’t let it happen to you!)

Hell yeah! Another Nils M Holm banger - in hardcover! #lisp #grass


#lisp #lispmachine #symbolics #genera #pascal #niklauswirth Niklaus Wirth's PASCAL made it to unusual systems: Here is a screenshot of a Lisp Machine, browsing the original Pascal User Manual and Report, but in a hypertext browser, with a PASCAL implementation loaded...


The NuBus started as an MIT research project and was used in such diverse machines as the NuMachine by TI (originally designed by Western Digital), LMI's Lambda and TI's Explorer Lisp machines, the TI1500 family of Unix servers, Apple's 68k (starting with the Mac II) and first generation PowerPC Macintoshes (7100/8100) and, in a modified version, as expansion bus for the NeXT Cube.

so after my last lisp post I implemented if statements and functions and a multi-line REPL, why didn't I tried making a lisp before?? it's so much fun!

also thanks to @Andre_LA for introducing me to this lispy world. 😁

The Autumn Lisp Game Jam has begun! 40 registered participants. Happy jammin'! https://itch.io/jam/autumn-lisp-game-jam-2023 #lisp #gamedev #gamejam


Did anyone here read the #paper: "Design of #Lisp based #processors; or #Scheme: the dielectric Lisp; or Finite Memories considered harmful; or #LAMBDA: the ultimate opcode" by Guy L Steele and Gerald J Sussman (1979)
<https://dspace.mit.edu/handle/1721.1/5731>

It's starting to interest me *a lot* so I'm reading it again.
If you want to #discuss or know stuff about it I probably don't, come to me!
