    He was kind enough to email it to me so I thought it worth sharing......

    Thank for the freebee Eddie... (I didn't mean to ryhme that)

    It looks like it has lots of handy referance tables.

    I know it's a free e-book but, the second paragraph on page five made me LOL.

    "LISP was the second higher programming language after FORTRAN.
    I was never really popular. That changed in the eighties.
    "

    He must have bought acid wash jeans and some big hair.

    I started going through that free LISP course that Eddie included in that first post. It seems aimed at people like me who really know nothing about it so I thought it would be perfect, but I ran into a snag at the first long LISP programme that he has you type in and run in lesson 4. I typed it in note pad, loaded it and typed it into the command line and I got ....

    ;error: too few arguments

    Can anyone tell me if I did something wrong or if there is a typo in the lesson?

    I would guess you mis-typed a function, perhaps one of the math functions like (1+ x y) or (1- ai a2); if you have a space in the wrong place you'd get an error. "too few arguments" means something missing where required, such as (+ 2) - missing a second argument to add to the 2.

    Thanks CarLB, I went through and I did miss a space, but now I'm getting another error: bad argument type: numberp: nil.

    I've gone over it very carefully now several times. I'm just going to go on with the explainations and keep looking at other lisp tutorials until I can develop an eye for what is wrong.

    I would be curious to know though if anyone has gone through this tutorial already, actually used it and tried out the exercises and can say they work from their own experience.
