Boo is a Python like language (less verbose than C#) and Lisp# (Lsharp) is a lisp based scripting language. Has anybody played around with these? Are they useful?
I've seen them before but I haven't played with them – I don't have .NET on this system but I'll be installing Mono in a few weeks so I can play with it over easter.
Lsharp looks to be interesting, it certainly has potential and it can work seamlessly with the .NET framework. That's a net win for sure as the software industry goes further down that path.
That seems to be the main advantage it has over Lisp/Scheme to .NET compilers like BigLoo but I think you'd have to use the language to get a feel for it.
I can't find this anywhere in the documentation but if it's dynamically scoped I'd stay clear. That's up to you but I'm not a fan
