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.
newLISP combines the power of classic LISP with the facilities of a modern scripting language, such as regular expressions, network functions, multitasking, etc. This book is a straightforward and simple description of the basics of the language.
