  • That's all really interesting... Converting Lisp to Postscript seems almost trivial, just using some First In Last Out inversion...

    Anyway, I've seen your source code, It's all nice reading... but can you recommend a way to run it, apart from having and using a Postscript printer? Ghostscript? If so, how would that work? I've never used Ghostscript for anything other than processing/converting/showing pictures.
    • You just do "gs skreeth.psl" at a shell prompt to run the code. But for the moment that'll just run all the self-tests in the code and dump you at a GS prompt (where you can enter further PostScript commands). Enter "quit" to exit.
  • And it will of course be trivial to implement perl6 in Lisp, thus giving us perl on printers :-)
