I think the question should be re-posed in less loaded terms, since the whole "LFSP/LFM" thing rubs me the wrong way. As far as I can tell, it's another case of the usual ad hominem "my favorite language is X. X has Y, which is absent in many other languages. I think I'm smart. Therefore X is a 'language for smart people', and Y, its distinguishing feature, is a 'smart people' feature." I personally like macros, and enjoy Lisp, but I think of it as a "language for people who like programming languages in and of themselves." Sometimes it's "smart" to make up your own language to solve a problem, and sometimes it's "stupid" (I've tried it in both cases;).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
