Och Mr Coppin

Lisp is a fine language, but all "Lisp" essays you'll find on the
internet except Richard Gabriel's "Worse is Better" are absolute tosh.

Read Olin Shiver's introduction to SRE regex notation for an
intelligent contribution to the "6 different libraries" problem you
seem to be having, rather than some cargo cultist muddy thinking.


By the way, referencing the original article circa half way down -
didn't Mark P. Jones write Gofer and the original Hugs by himself  -
people actually used those rather than Qi.
