Yeah, "dynamicity" started with Lisp a long, long time ago...
(but Lisp is not compiled to machine code).
Now you've done it. You've angered the Secret Lisp Masters. As a
long-time lisp junkie and medium-long Common Lisp fan, I have to tell
you that all commercial Common Lisps are compiled to rather efficient
I did _not_ say that Lisp is inefficient, I just said that it _is_
dynamic. I know that both worlds can live together (think about
Objective-C). In fact some functional languages can be *even faster*
than C (side note: http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/ is great).
No, but what you did say was that "but Lisp is not compiled to machine
code" which is clearly wrong.
You'll wake up to find the car of a horse in your bed (it's a lisp
joke, albeit a rather bad one).
