I don't know if you remember but I told you to drop the syntax (remove the parantheses - or flatten the syntax ;).
There are other languages inspired by LISP. Look at Planner, Conniver, ML, Scheme, Haskell for example. You should study LL(k)/LR(k)/Precedence parsing. Received on Fri Mar 31 2006 - 01:51:39 CST
