I've just started teaching myself lisp. I'm using plain old clisp and no
but I'm learning from Practical Common Lisp (most of the chapters are online
http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/) and finding that using clisp instead of
the recommended environment
is not problem. The book recommends using slime , which seems to be some
sort of lisp friendly add on for
emacs. I've looked around for IDE's and I cant find any non-commercial ide
thats any good.
Finally , for a really quick fun introduction to common lisp try
Its an introduction to lisp comic book :)
It walks you through writing an old style text adventure game.
Good luck with lisp and if you need anyone to bounce questions off
(although the odds of me being able to answer are slim) fire away.
