Conrad Barski's 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 acceptance will be adequate to scare off even skilled programmers. these darkish days are ultimately over—Land of Lisp brings the ability of useful 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 commence with the fundamentals, like record manipulation, I/O, and recursion, then stream directly to extra complicated themes like macros, better order programming, and domain-specific languages. Then, whilst your mind overheats, you could relax 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 may also find yourself writing ado-file programs in order to use [R] ml, [R] nl or [R] simulate. Although many researchers may become very efficient users of Stata without ever writing an ado-file program, others will find that “quick-and-dirty” code that gets the job done today must be rewritten incessantly, with minor variations, to perform a similar task tomorrow. With that epiphany, the knowledgeable Stata user will recognize that it is a short leap to becoming more productive by learning how to write their own ado-files, whether or not those programs are of general use or meant to be shareable with other Stata users.

Furthermore, if like myself you are called upon to transfer some of the technology you have developed to students, co-workers or Statalist posters, you will have the worked examples to give them at your fingertips. Truly, then, a little bit of Stata programming goes a long way! 1 References Cox, N. J. 2001. Speaking Stata: How to repeat yourself without going mad. Stata Journal 1(1): 86–97. —. 2002.
