Readable-discuss -- Discuss how to make s-expressions more readable


About Readable-discuss
English (USA)

This list is for discussing how to make Lisp-based s-expressions more readable for developing programs. This includes discussions on sweet-expressions, various "infix" macros, and so on. The goal is to develop open source software that implements the best of these ideas, so that those who want to use s-expressions for program representation can have a nicer alternative. All software must be open source software in this project. MIT/X or at least LGPL/LLGPL license preferred, since this maximizes the number of users.
