    Re: Learning Common Lisp

    I know of one particular lisper who uses Vi ;)

    In fact, if it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't even know about Lisp.

    Well, everything from video playback to graphics. I'm currently developing games, and need full graphics support from my VGA with things such as OpenGL (And I don't want to work on windows!).

    Re: When trying to make a game...

    Game programming is very complex. Believe me, I started out wanting to write games too.

    As far as stuff you need to know. You should know 1) a programming language...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Is Python too easy for a first programming language?

    Ah, I'm sorry, I got a bit ahead of myself there.

    To me it just seemed like you were saying that it all ends up at C and that if you want to "get far", C is the where it's at. Perhaps I misread...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Is Python too easy for a first programming language?

    How would you explain Lisp? :)

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Is Python too easy for a first programming language?

    Re: How to Check for Type Tuple in Python?

    If you want a tuple with a single string or number you have to include a comma after it.



    >>> tup = (98,)
    >>> type(tup)
    <type 'tuple'>
    >>> tup = ('hello',)
    >>> type(tup)
    <type 'tuple'>

    [SOLVED] Re: Yet another number guessing game - Python

    Nice! I remember doing something like this.

    One thing to note: use 'raw_input' instead of 'input' for safer coding.

    Other than that, I'm glad you're liking Python.
