I'm a sysadmin using mostly perl for my day-to-day tasks. Zilions of
modules and lazy type of writing is very suited for me ... Mostly moving
data from one place to another.
I've been hearing a lot about Lisp lately, and I'd like to give it a
But it's difficult to do something similiar to my perl throwaway scripts
in Clisp. There seems to be very few(non-free) on no supporting libraries
(sql, ldap, parsing files, ...). Yes, I am lazy... to some degree.
Almost every day I'm faced with moving data from let's say ldap to sql
or vice versa, parsing few files and generating some meaningful output.
Few other, bigger things are billing software (all writtn in perl),
threaded tcp servers, XMLRPC, ...
I'd like to try writing this thingies in Clisp. Is this even sane to do?
