This category holds links to software, web, and ftp sites pertaining to the Lisp programming language in any form: Common Lisp, CLOS, ISLISP, Logo, Scheme, ZetaLisp, etc. The Lisps are among the oldest programming languages. Of computer languages still in wide use today, only FORTRAN is older. Lisp is mainly a functional language, usually interpreted, though many versions compile. LISP is an acronym for LISt Processing, invented by John McCarthy in the late 1950's as a formalism for reasoning on the use of recursion equations as a model for computation. Lisp has evolved with the field of Computer Science, always putting the best ideas from the field into practical use. In 1994, Common Lisp became the first ANSI standard to incorporate object-oriented programming. There is a Lisp variant for every taste, and they generally support several programming models: procedural + functional + object-oriented. "Lisp is a programmable programming language." -John Foderaro
