Problems getting even simple examples working on IIS-6 :(

I am having fits with win2003 server and cgi's. I am sure I am missing something stupid. Eariler versions works just fine on windows 2000 and NT4 servers for that matter. When I map ".cgi" to newlisp.exe and attempt to access an index.cgi that contains a simple (print ...) statement, I can see the e...

Wanted, no, make that Needed: DNS Examples

Currently we have a smtp client, pop client, and httpd server example. A DNS client example would be very helpfull. It would be a big start to the creation of a http client/browser :) Wish list: 1 Given a domain.name it should return an ip address. 2 Given an IP address it should return the Reverse ...

Re: Errors

AutoLISP barfs up its stack to the console when it blows up, while it is not a grecefull exit, it leaves little doubt as to where it the code things went wrong. An error dump would not require any line numbers :)

Newlisp_7004 running on RedHat 8.0 was easy :)

This weekends project was to figure out how to get linux running on my "old" computer and get Newlisp-tk running on it. I started out with the Redhat 8.0 boxed install disks and used the redhat network to update everything all 136.8 megs worth. I ended up with Linux Version 2.4.18-26.8.0 (redhat). N...

I am happy to say, that the french report was wrong,
and Rumors of his death have been rebuted.
John McCarthy of LISP fame has been reported as
being alive and kicking as of 1/14/03.

I guess the value of old LISP code will remain stable for a while longer :)
