Daron, why is ActiveX is slower then lisp? (why do you think it is the way it is.)


Because it was written in the 80's by Bill and Company? Bunch o' pot smokers.

There are many languages older than LISP - just think of how Ada got it's name! LISP is merely the second oldest language still in use.


Ah! That I didn't know. What's Ada?

Nope. Why is AutoLisp faster then ActiveX in AutoCAD?

I think Fortran is one of the oldest. You guys remember QBasic? :lol:

ActiveX ain't that old, maybe 4 years ago.

Yea, a bunch of VERY wealthy pot smokers. You can say what you want about Mr. Gates and his Windows OS, but you don't get that rich by being stupid.

Ada is a high level language (chosen as standard by your DoD in '79).

The name comes from Ada Lovelace (one of Lord Byron's oopses) who got fascinated by Babbage's algebra machines and set up a "language" .. or at least some methods .. to program them.

That was in 1830's or there about

Craig and anybody else wanting to get started with Vlisp, there are a few great sites as well a few easy to follow tutorials like this one, written by Mark himself. So, if you have a moment to spare, you might have a look in the Teach Me forum. It's the place for turorials.

I can still remember turning in those damn punch cards for Fortran class at USF.
But i did love Apple Basic and 6502 machine language, my cassette was the only
permanent memory for my Apple until I got my first floppy drive.

Ahhhh the good old days.

Who ever said that was nuts.
