Experiences with LISP and Brawler

with 3 comments

If there is someone whose advice I take a bit seriously on programming then its probably sriram and the last time when I started talking about LISP to him he said this ‘Try writing a big project in LISP and you will really know if its as great as you think it is’, So I thought I would just do that. And I’ve decided to write an ad-hoc search engine and one of the primary components the Web Crawler is what I will be starting to do.

Now, one might ask what’s so great about this search engine.. (and yeah, Google is always there),So I thought I should introduce a twist in the tale and this is what I may term as a Social Search engine. I can’t probably define the term more precisely as I only have a vague idea of what I am trying to do. So I will be blogging about here. Lets see how Common Lisp takes up to this challenge

  2. Honoured, dude!

    I’ll give you this – if you come back to me after this and say that Lisp is a super cool language for *code* that you would want to write, I’ll eat my own editor and give Lisp another try 🙂
