re: The Idea of Lisp VIEW POST


"Oh! so many parentheses!" is a common complaint, and is probably one of the most common reasons people ignore Lisp. Readability matters. If you're interested in Lisp, but want to use a more readable notation that retains Lisp's power (including homoiconicity), see the readable Lisp s-expressions project.


Give yourself two weeks and the parentheses will not be a problem. Adapting editors or changing to an editor that handles parentheses well also helps.
