  Lisp programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lisp is a family of computer programming languages with a long history and a distinctive fully-parenthesized syntax.
Lisp was used as the implementation of the programming language Micro Planner that was the foundation for the famous AI system SHRDLU.
Lisp was the first homoiconic programming language: the primary representation of program code is the same type of list structure that is also used for the main data structures.

 LISP programming language - Wikipedia
Lisp (coined from "list processing") is an early programming language with a simple prefix-notation syntax, dynamic typing (that is, untyped variables but typed values), and special features for processing lists.
In fact, there are now many different languages with "Lisp" in their names, and it is probably better to regard "Lisp" as the name of a family of languages rather than of a single language.
The language was invented by John McCarthy in 1958 whilst he was at MIT; he published a paper in CACM in 1960 titled "Recursive Functions of Symbolic Expressions and Their Computation by Machine, Part I" (part II was never published).

Lisp is the most popular language used in artificial intelligence research as a result of its extensibility and inherent nature to simplify exploratory programming.
Lisp is a functional language, and as a result requires a different way of thinking about problems than in languages that follow the more common imperative paradigm such as FORTRAN, Pascal, and C/C++.

 The Lisp Programming Language
Because Lisp is its own metalanguage, the power of the entire programming language can be brought to bear on the task of transforming program text.
Lisp also emerged during that era, having appeared for the first time in 1958, but it's changed significantly over the years in ways that maintain a certain consistency, making it perhaps the most appropriate choice among languages today for the majority of programming.
Lisp macros are more like using an API in your favorite language to generate code during the compilation phase and/or while loading and/or during execution but in ways that the analogy breaks down.

LISP is an acronym for LISt Processing, invented by John McCarthy in the late 1950's as a formalism for reasoning on the use of recursion equations as a model for computation.
Scheme is often used in computer science curricula and programming language research due to its ability to represent many programming abstractions with its simple primitives.

In object-oriented programming languages the root idea is to bind together imperative commands and the data they act on, forming encapsulated objects.
He called this language Lisp, for 'List Processing,' because one of his key ideas was to use a simple data structure called a list for both code and data.
Lisp, which was devised in the earliest days of computers, survives in many systems today in various forms despite its clumsy syntax involving the extensive use of nested brackets.

 The Scheme Programming Language
Scheme was one of the first programming languages to incorporate first class procedures as in the lambda calculus, thereby proving the usefulness of static scope rules and block structure in a dynamically typed language.
Scheme was the first major dialect of Lisp to distinguish procedures from lambda expressions and symbols, to use a single lexical environment for all variables, and to evaluate the operator position of a procedure call in the same way as an operand position.
Scheme is also the first programming language to support hygienic macros, which permit the syntax of a block-structured language to be extended reliably.

He invented the LISP programming language in 1958, developed the concept of time-sharing in the late fifties and early sixties, and has worked on proving that computer programs meet their specifications since the early sixties.
We describe two different syntax modules: a module for a sequentially-defined syntax of a typical programming language, doing the bulk of its parsing in a per-window function; and an interactive editor for a textual representation of lute tablature, recursively using a per-buffer function for its parsing.

 EuLisp - TunesWiki
(European Lisp), is a modern object-oriented dialect of the Lisp programming language whose design is less minimalist than that of Scheme but less constrained by compatibility reasons than Common Lisp.
In particular, it has a single namespace for variables and functions (like Scheme, and unlike Common Lisp, ie a Lisp-1) and its type system is perfectly integrated with the object system.
Furthermore, the language pervasively uses the module system, so that every program may import only those parts of the language that it needs.

 PC AI - LISP Programming Language
LISP was formulated by AI pioneer John McCarthy in the late 50's.
LISP's essential data structure is an ordered sequence of elements called a "list." The elements may be irreducible entities called "atoms" (functions, names or numbers) or they can be other lists.
Originally, LISP was built around a small set of simple list-manipulating functions which were building blocks for defining other, more complex functions.
