In this greatly expanded edition of the defacto standard, you'll learn
about the nearly 200 changes already made since original publication -
and find out about gray areas likely to be revised later. Written by
the Vice-Chairman of X3J13 (the ANSI committee responsible for the
standardization of Common Lisp) and co-developer of the language
itself, the new edition contains the entire text of the first edition
plus six completely new chapters. They cover:
* CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System, with new features to
support function overloading and object-oriented programming, plus
complete technical specifications
* Loops, a powerful control structure for multiple variables
* Conditions, a generalization of the error signaling mechanism
* Series and generators
* Plus other subjects not part of the ANSI standards but of
interest to professional programmers. Throughout, you'll find
fresh examples, additional clarifications, warnings, and tips -
all presented with the author's customary vigor and wit.
