I loved Graham's characterization of the hierarchy of power in
- Languages less powerful than the one you understand look impoverished
- Languages more powerful than the one you understand look weird
When I compare Lisp and Haskell, the big question in my mind is this:
is lazy evaluation sufficient to make up for the lack of macros?
I would love to hear from a real Lisp macro hacker who has also done
lazy functional progrmaming.
