    From what I can pull from my addled mind at this early morning time, the book is about certain programming techniques that have been discovered by Lisp programmers over the years, but aren't very well known since they're impossible to implement in conventional programming languages -- like C -- but which work just fine in Perl. I seem to remember something about a chapter being devoted to memoization. As to when, I think it was supposed to be mid-2001. That's all I got right now. I know there's some list you can get on to receive occasional status reports, but MJD definitely isn't kidding when he says "occasional". -- -yossef
