GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual
by Bil Lewis, Dan LaLiberte, Richard Stallman - Free Software Foundation , 2009
This manual attempts to be a full description of Emacs Lisp. Emacs Lisp is more than a mere 'extension language'; it is a full computer programming language in its own right. You can use it as you would any other programming language.
Computer Science Logo Style
by Brian Harvey - The MIT Press , 1997
This series is for people who are interested in computer programming because it's fun. The three volumes use the Logo as the vehicle for an exploration of computer science from the perspective of symbolic computation and artificial intelligence.
Let Over Lambda: 50 Years of Lisp
by Doug Hoyte - Lulu.com , 2008
One of the most hardcore computer programming books out there. Starting with the fundamentals, it describes the most advanced features of the most advanced language: Common Lisp. This book is about macros, that is programs that write programs.
Basic Lisp Techniques
by David J. Cooper, Jr. - Franz Inc. , 2003
The purpose of this book is to showcase the features of Common Lisp, and to give you a quick-start guide for using Common Lisp as a development environment. This guide gives you all the tools you need to begin writing Lisp applications.
Casting Spells in Lisp
by Conrad Barski - Lisperati.com , 2008
Anyone who has ever learned to program in Lisp will tell you it is very different from any other programming language. It is different in lots of surprising ways- This comic book will let you find out how Lisp's unique design makes it so powerful!
Natural Language Processing in Lisp
by Gerald Gazdar, Chris Mellish - Addison-Wesley , 1989
This book is aimed at computer scientists and linguists at undergraduate, postgraduate, or faculty level, who have taken a programming course in Lisp. The focus is on the processing of the orthographic forms of natural language utterances and text.
An Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp
