Very nice post. This is one of those ideas that I had wish I had thought of first. As an aside it would be representational to have at least one of the Clojure examples use the -> or ->> macros. I do not see this often in historical Lisps, but it's idiomatic in Clojure. Thank you for taking the time to do this.
Want something from "Common Lisp, The Reference"?
Fogus: thank you for support. I'added two snippets from your book with ->.Rich: yes, it would be nice, thank you.
It's funny how the typography from when I (one) learned Lisp seems like the "correct" typography (the late 80's for me).
--> and ->> have to be the things I most dislike about clojure. Set up an idea on how things are going to be, then violate it. That's mad.
Kazimir, great post (as usual). Will you tell us what is the name of the font (and possibly the founder) of the one used by Siebel and Barski? I love that one (or two?). Thanks! --Rick (rickyboy)
Thanks, Rick. I think it is Lucas fonts, The Sans Mono Condensed.
