While doing a little house cleaning I ran across a few versions of stdlib. I was just wondering if anyone used this.

We are running a very old version (2000i) of acad, and out of the lisp programs we have, many of them do use the StdLib.

I have used it Daniel .. years ago ..  [ insert geriatric story here ]

If I recall, our MP gets a mention in there somewhere too.  Interesting project !

StdLib was a behemoth of a library written by Reini Urban. I think I probably got a nod because I responded to a challenge to write a function to calculate combinations. While I give Reini props for attempting to write and make available such a huge library can't say I ever used it or endorsed it. As I recall it was a highly coupled library, making it challenging for casual use. Having said that I know folks who use it extensively, like my friend David Kozina, so maybe I'm just being a snot.

I might still have it, in one of my CD's somewhere.....

After, a try, did not like it at all..... it was to much cream on all the functions.....  :-D

tried it, didn't like it ... much too disjointed for my liking, even though I still have an STDlib on my HD ...

hehe .. I just realized something .. good thing it isn't contageous

I searched thru the lib once with the idea i could start to use it, but its very ... what the word? ... dependent. Every function depends on another. Very `web' like.

I have started to re-build my own library. I dont have much at the moment, but hopefully soon i will be back up and running.
