Welcome to Wrong Planet.

Let's see. Let me try and interpret what you said.
You are a computer science student. That makes a lot of sense. Aspies breath computers.

You then went on to say You love emacs. The eMac (short for education Mac) is a discontinued all-in-one Mac desktop computer that was produced and designed by Apple Computer. It is a good computer. I have one in my home. It is now around 15 years old and works well. I use it every day.

Then you went on to say "elisp". I am not sure what you mean here.

Elisp has many meanings. For example: Do you mean an early language in play settings.
eLIPS is a resource for early years practitioners, teacher educators, parents, researchers and professionals with an interest in language development.
Early Language in Play

or Elips is an Armenian band formed in 1986.

or do you mean something different?

Welcome to WP! I hope you enjoy it here...I do!

I also studied Computer Science, a long, long, long time ago. And have since made my way through two careers in computers.

P.S. BBcode can be used for fun on WP.... For instance, I like playing with COLORS, text formatting, "art", and hyperlinks.

So according to the internet: GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable, free/libre text editor.
At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing.

I am about 50 years older than you and I do not always stay up with the latest software. Then that explains the rest of your first thread. "Gentoo and common lisp" are part of the lisp structure.

Nice to know. Welcome to the site.

gentoo is the source-based linux distribution, where you compile software manually
common lisp is a programming language

Hello, and welcome to Wrong Planet!

When you said common lisp, i was thinking of the speech impediment :lol:
I obviously didn’t know it was a programming language :lol:
That’s pretty cool!
