Re: Mathematica and Lisp


I don't think studying Lisp is necessary unless you are using lisp
through Run[].

Study Mathematica Book is all.

my bookmark senses say...

avoid Haskell: it's not mature, not much used, or well laid out.

Standard ML is worth a review abstract language just as much as Lisp
is.

Finally.  Mathematica's inner C language, smp, is worth a quick
review.  Look into Mathematica's history.  They used X windows,
Postscript, ideas and abilities from many languages and gui toolkits.
Amazing how it all came together.  But smp drives the language part.
