Publisher: Free Software Foundation, Inc. 2002
Number of pages: 314
This is an introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp, for people who are not programmers. Although Emacs Lisp is usually thought of in association only with Emacs, it is a full computer programming language. You can use Emacs Lisp as you would any other programming language. This introduction to Emacs Lisp is designed to get you started: to guide you in learning the fundamentals of programming, and more importantly, to show you how you can teach yourself to go further.

LISP is a remarkable and powerful language, because not only does it govern the operation of a computer, but also it is a mathematical language of great power for processing processes in mathematics, logic, and symbol manipulation in general.

This book is an introduction to Common Lisp. The author considers Common Lisp to be twice as good as Java for some applications. Common Lisp compilers are freely available, stable, and compiled Common Lisp code is very fast.

The LISP language is designed primarily for symbolic data processing used for symbolic calculations in differential and integral calculus, electrical circuit theory, mathematical logic, etc. The manual describes LISP, a formal mathematical language.
