Learn Lisp programming in a data structures context, including tables, functions, forms, expressions, typed-pointers, I/O, garbage collection and some applications. This short primer contains a careful description of the data structures manipulated by Lisp functions. These data structures and others, notably hash tables, are also used in constructing a Lisp interpreter.

Interpreting Lisp will be of special interest to those learning and using programming languages and computer architecture as well as data structures. This book will be useful to autodidacts, professional programmers, and computer enthusiasts in a wide variety of fields.

What You'll Learn Use the atom table and the number table in Lisp Master expressions, typed pointers, arguments and results in typed pointers, and more Write lambda expressions in Lisp Bind actual values to formal arguments Develop games in Lisp Who This Book Is For Experienced programmers new to Lisp.
