  • I've found Emacs Lisp to be the most practical lisp around, and as lisps go, it's pretty interestingly complete.

    • Randal L. Schwartz
    • Stonehenge
  • ML, particularly ocaml [inria.fr].

    For good performance (esp. memory usage), the compiler needs
    static typing. For the programmer, static typing
    necessitates type inference. Static typing without type
    inference leads to the irritating verbosity of C or Java.

    I'd love to see a type-inferenced version of C, actually,
    for those programs where ocaml is too high-level -- for
    example, kernels.
  • The thunder god went for a ride,
    Upon his favorite filly.
    "I'm Thor!" he cried.
    The horse replied,
    "You forgot the thaddle, thilly!"

    I'm in town all week. Try the veal.
