Read e-book online Land of Lisp: Learn to Program in Lisp, One Game at a Time! PDF

Lisp has been hailed because the world's strongest programming language, yet its cryptic syntax and educational attractiveness may be adequate to scare off even skilled programmers. these darkish days are eventually over—Land of Lisp brings the facility of practical programming to the people!

With his brilliantly quirky comics and out-of-this-world video games, longtime Lisper Conrad Barski teaches you the mysteries of universal Lisp. You'll begin with the fundamentals, like record manipulation, I/O, and recursion, then stream directly to extra advanced themes like macros, better order programming, and domain-specific languages. Then, whilst your mind overheats, you could chill with an action-packed comedian publication interlude!

Along the best way you'll create (and play) video games like Wizard experience, a textual content event with a whiskey-soaked twist, and Grand robbery Wumpus, the main violent model of Hunt the Wumpus the realm has ever seen.

You'll research to:

-Master the quirks of Lisp's syntax and semantics
-Write concise and chic sensible programs
-Use macros, create domain-specific languages, and examine different complicated Lisp techniques
-Create your personal net server, and use it to play browser-based games
-Put your Lisp abilities to the try out through writing brain-melting video games like cube of Doom and Orc Battle

With Land of Lisp, the facility of useful programming is yours to wield.

Example text

Ideally, models are responsible for encapsulating data and handling the business logic related to that data. Views are responsible for presenting information to the user and, often, for formatting and styling that presentation. Controllers act as the intermediary between the models and the views, often controlling access and telling views when data in a model changes. In general, when applying MVC, you should have objects that play each of the three roles distinctly. Cocoa is much more apt than Rails to have objects play dual roles, often either as controller-views or controller-models.

They also map well to the Ruby dynamic evaluation techniques, such as send(), eval(), class_eval(), instance_eval(), and so on. The importance of colon placement When working with selectors, be aware of a common error. Consider the following two @selector directives: @selector(someMethod) @selector(someMethod:) Notice the difference? The second has a trailing colon, which is a critical distinction. A selector with no trailing colon indicates a method with no parameters, whereas a selector with a trailing colon indicates a method with one parameter.

Remember the second parameter, target? You pass in self, which means that the object from which you call this function is the target for the doSomethingOnTimer selector. You define the doSomethingOnTimer method in the same class from which you call the NSTimer method because you’re passing the class as the target for the selector. The combination of the target: and selector: parameters is the equivalent of having the timer run this line of code: [self doSomethingOnTimer]; Selectors are a powerful feature when implementing dynamic functionality in your applications.
