Stackoverflow answer of the day

Monday, September 29th, 2008

A stackoverflow question entitled “Python Vs. Ruby for Metaprogramming” begins “I’m currently primarily a D programmer and am looking to add another language to my toolbox, preferably one that supports the metaprogramming hacks that just can’t be done in a statically compiled language like D. I’ve read up on Lisp a little and I would love to find a language that allows some of the cool stuff that Lisp does, but without the strange syntax, etc. of Lisp.” and goes on for another 20 lines listing various desiderata.

The currently top-ranked answer, in its entirety: “Grow some and learn Lisp.”
