1. Getting Started with Lisp > What You've Learned

What You've Learned

In this chapter, we discussed the different dialects of Lisp and installing CLISP. You learned the following along the way:

  • There are two main dialects of Lisp: Common Lisp and Scheme. Both have a lot to offer, but we’ll focus on Common Lisp in this book.

  • Common Lisp is a multiparadigm language, meaning that it supports many different programming styles.

  • CLISP is a Common Lisp implementation that is easy to set up, making it a great choice for a Lisp novice.

  • You can type in Lisp commands directly from the CLISP REPL.
