Experiences with LISP and Brawler

If there is someone whose advice I take a bit seriously on programming then its probably sriram and the last time when I started talking about LISP to him he said this 'Try writing a big project in LISP and you will really know if its as great as you think it is', So I thought I would just do that. And I've decided to write an ad-hoc search engine and one of the primary components the Web Crawler is what I will be starting to do.

Now, one might ask what's so great about this search engine.. (and yeah, Google is always there),So I thought I should introduce a twist in the tale and this is what I may term as a Social Search engine. I can't probably define the term more precisely as I only have a vague idea of what I am trying to do. So I will be blogging about here. Lets see how Common Lisp takes up to this challenge

'hey, this has got nothing to do with your post per se.. but can you post from software like w.bloggar/drivel/ etc?'

Honoured, dude!

I'll give you this - if you come back to me after this and say that Lisp is a super cool language for *code* that you would want to write, I'll eat my own editor and give Lisp another try :-)

Hmm, have run into a few road blocks myself recently.. espescially with libraries..

got CLOCC finally configured.. for CLISP and SBCL.
