drawing stuff

I've been drawing some stuff with Lisp lately.



Wow, that broadband coverage is pretty out of date. It manages to list one company that doesn't exist anymore twice (acadianet), and at least one other dead company as well.

but kinda cool anyway.
It's from 2005 (aka "useless").

I found out (after making the PDF) that the state has the data available for live display. The interface is a little clunky, but here it is:



ESRI Files in Lisp

Any chance that you will publish your ESRI Shapefile pareser - it could be useful !

Re: ESRI Files in Lisp

I'm thinking about cleaning it up and publishing it, but it's not at the top of my TODO list. I could be persuaded to bump it up to the top, for suitable compensation... :)


Re: ESRI Files in Lisp

Hi Xach,

I've had in mind to write an ESRI shapefile reader (and possibly writer) in CL for some time now. I even have the specs printed out ready to go. If your code is in a hackable state (and you want it hacked) I thought that it might give me some motivation to jump right into it and get something done.

Let me know what you think! Bear in mind that I'm no CL wizard like yourself! and nor do I have many hours of spare time every week.

Hope you don't mind me posting to you in a reply to a blog entry, but could you take a look at the latest version of my fractal LISP code and let me know if it works correctly now ?
There is a comment with updated code.
I fixed it up to work in CLISP and SBCL.
PS I like the mesmerizing LISP gif.

Re: Fractal

Nope, still doesn't work.

Don't write scripts that (quit) at the end. Write functions that can be called.

Don't write scripts in CL-USER. Make your own package and :use the packages you need, or just use package prefixes.
