CLOS Guild Battleship

Lisp Dialect

Common Lisp

Synopsis

Common Lisp has the most sophisticated object-oriented programming framework of any major programming language, called the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS). It is customizable at a fundamental level using the Metaobject Protocol (MOP). There’s really nothing like it anywhere else in programming. It lets you create incredibly complex software without losing control over the code.
