LISP List Processing Programming Language

LISP List Processing Programming Language



LISP List Processing Programming Language - LISP is a general purpose programming language accommodating powerful facilities for Symbol Manipulation. The LISP takes its name from "LIST Processor". Symbol Manipulation is something which is similar as working with words and sentences. Lisp is a family of computer programming language, which was designed in 1960 by John McCarthy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The Language was developed by Steve Russell, Timothy P Hart and Mike Levin. McCarthy published its design in a paper in communications of the ACM in 1960. Lisp is the second oldest High level Programming Language after FORTRAN. Many of the concepts are incorporated in Computer Science like Tree data structure, automatic storage management, dynamic typing, higher order functions, recursion etc.


What are the Application areas of LISP Programming?



  1. It is used in AutoCAD application

  2. It is used in Igor Engraver

  3. It is used in areas where rapid development of prototypes is required

  4. It is used in interactive command line, which are combined with IDE

  5. Used in Yahoo! Store Web Commerce Site.

  6. It is used in research development applications like Artificial Intelligence.



A LISP program uses symbolic expressions to ease the work with data and procedures. The syntax of LISP is relatively very simple. LISP is normally used as an interpreter. Lisp is closely related to Artificial Intelligence Research communities like PDS – 10 System. Lisp contains some tool which are capable to solve some the most difficult problems in the world of computing. Lisp is one of the most important programming language that is used in artificial intelligence. LISP List Processing Programming Language.


What are the Features of LISP Programming Language?



  1. Contain Built in Support for Lists

  2. It uses Dynamic Typing

  3. It uses uniform syntax through the program – Lisp contains data and codes which are represented uniformly.

  4. It consists of Standard Macros. In this language variable declaration is rare.

  5. It really works on Interactive environment. The feature of recursion make it most popular in Artificial Intelligence.

  6. LISP uses a very simple notation in which operators and their operands are given in a parenthesized list.

  7. List are surrounded by parenthesis. Ex – (), (()), ((a, b, c)) etc.

  8. The interchangeability of code and data promote lisp instantly recognizable syntax.



Some of the Versions of LISP Programming language - -



  1. LISP 1 – It was the first Implementation

  2. LISP 1.5 – It was the first widely distributed version of LISP.

  3. Stanford LISP – It was the successor of LISP 1.5, rendered by Maclisp and Interlisp.

  4. Many other versions was released after Standard LISP containing special features, these are MACLISP, InterLisp, Franz Lisp, Standard Lisp, Zeta Lisp, Common Lisp, Dylan, ANSI Common Lisp etc.

  5. Clojure – It is a recent Lisp version which compiles to the Java virtual Machine.

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware

When Task Scheduler gets Infected by Malware - We are familiar with malware attacks on Computer. The hackers infect one or more files and thereby attaining full control on the System. There are millions of victims who had loosen either data or dollars in this respect. In this article we see a System file which is infected by these hackers at first stage. The System file infected by malware at first stage is Task Scheduler Engine (Taskeng.exe). The Task Scheduler Engine is a system file located in C:\Windows\System32 folder. This location is the default location for Taskeng.exe.



The Task Scheduler Engine is responsible for keeping track of tasks set to run at a time predefined by the user of the PC. As said earlier, the original location of this scheduler is C:\Windows\System32 folder. But it is suspicious if the location of scheduler gets change. If it is found in some other folder then it must be infectious. As a result, you constantly get a…

How to Project Android Phone Screen on Windows PC


Project Android Phone Screen on Windows PC - Four out of Five of us have Smartphones in our Pocket. We spend lots of time on Smartphone utilities like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube and other interesting Apps. These Smartphones are tremendously used due to Android Operating System installed in it. Android OS is one the successful mobile based OS running in the market.

On the Other side, Microsoft is emphasizing on features to ease Android user's connectivity with it. Microsoft has done lots of improvement for mobile utilities to the Windows 10 version 1809. With this upgradation, we can easily project Android phone screen on Windows PC. The extensive use of such features is seen on Digital Smart TVs Today. The introduction of Wi-Fi feature makes more reliable and user friendly.

So, if you are boredom with 5-6-inch Android Screen and want to mirror it on Computer screen, then read the full article to know the process, how to proj…

Fix Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter error

Fix Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter error


A Computer run smoothly with the coordination of Software & Hardware. In the absence of any one it will not run at all. Software being the Master utilizes each hardware attached to the System. And each hardware is operated with the help of Device Drivers installed in it. Operating System (OS) uses these device drivers to control & utilize each hardware when needed. Each hardware connected to the system must have their own Device Driver installed. A device driver is a program to initiate a hardware when required by Operating System.




Suppose, you want your PC to connect to the Network, it can only be possible when your PC has network related Device Driver. These Device Drivers are easily downloaded from Manufacturer Websites. In this article we focus on Network related problem. Suppose, your PC not obtaining Network connectivity. And each time you are getting an error message saying "Windows could not find a d…
