What is Common Lisp?
Common Lisp is the modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance,
compiled, ANSI-standardized, most prominent (along with Scheme) descendant of the long-running family of Lisp programming languages.
Common Lisp is known for being extremely flexible, having
excellent support for object oriented programming, and fast
prototyping capabilities. It also sports an extremely powerful
macro system that allows you to tailor the language to your
application, and a flexible run-time environment that allows
modification and debugging of running applications (excellent
for server-side development and long-running critical
software). It is a multi-paradigm programming language that
allows you to to choose the approach and paradigm according to
your application domain.
