The Lisp and Scheme programming languages

Tech Computer Center logo

Lisp dialects

Lisp, an acronym for List Processing, is simultaneously one of the most modern and one of the oldest and most venerable of programming languages. Its strengths are in its clear, simple structure and its great flexibility. It is often used in research and development, yet it has also been used for huge commercial packages.


Scheme is a recent language in the Lisp family that is very popular for instruction and real-world applications.
