Code from Paul Graham's "On Lisp" book

This directory contains source code from Paul Graham "On Lisp: Advanced Techniques for Common Lisp" Prentice Hall, Englewood Clifs, NJ, 1994. 400 pages, ISBN 0-13-030552-9. The code was mechanically extracted from the TeX source files for the book. The book emphasizes a bottom-up style of writing programs, which Graham claims is natural in Lisp and has advantages over the traditional way of writing programs in C and Pascal. Of special note are the in-depth sections on writing macros. There are several very nice examples. It also includes an implementation of Prolog and an ATN compiler.
