I'm looking for guidance on the best way to sort nested lists in #commonlisp. I have a structure along the lines of ((:key "banana" :date "Thu, 27 Aug 2020 15:40:39 -0400")(:key "kiwi" :date "Mon, 24 Aug 2020 16:23:53 -0400")) where I want to sort by :date -- it is trivial for me to convert the date data itself to a more sortable format, but I'm not sure of the best way to dip into the nested list and then preform the sort. //cc #lisp #functionalprogramming
Interested in learning Common Lisp? The majority of tutorials I've run across throw you into emacs to get started...the hiccup there being that emacs is, whilst v powerful, a big thing that needs to be learned in and of itself. This makes Common Lisp a wee bit harder to dive in to. My recommendation is to skip emacs until you are a bit cozier with Common Lisp itself. For editor/repl integration I think Sublime Text with the lispindent and SublimeREPL packages is a solid starting place.
I love that whenever I try to order glasses online the website almost always chokes when it process my prescription and then, if it can even deal with the perception, it almost invariable adds $20 - $50 more to the price. Evidently these systems don't get a whole bunch of people with double vision, lol.
