Hello,

in chapter 7 you write about Clojure:

"Unusually for a Lisp, it is a compiled rather than interpreted language."

The most well-known current implementations of Common Lisp are:

- ABCL, compiles to bytecode for JVM
- Clozure CL, compiles to native code
- CLISP, compiles to bytecode
- CMUCL, compiles to native code
- ECL, compiles to bytecode or to native code via intermediate C layer
- MKCL, compiles to bytecode or to native code via intermediate C layer
- SBCL, compiles to native code

You should not put urban legends in a book smilie

Re: Strange claim about Lisp
Hi,

First off - apologies for not responding faster. The forum seems to have stopped mailing me when new posts were added here, so I wasn't aware of threads which needed my attention.

Thanks for the feedback - I suppose I meant more in the sense of the historical development of the language, so I should probably say so. Good catch - the book is going to press in a couple of days, so I'll endeavour to have the change made before then.

Thanks,

Ben
