In the last weeks I have been neglecting Plumhead, that is PHP on Parrot. Instead I have been concentrating on learning about Common Lisp and Scheme. Currently I'm working my way through a nice Scheme tutorial, Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum Days http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/dorai/t-y-scheme/t-y-scheme.html. I try to make the tutorial examples work in 'languages/scheme', a Scheme on Parrot implementation from Jeff Goff.
I also got me a copy of Lisp in small pieces. But I found that it's better to know a little bit of Scheme, before starting to delve into that.
