    ed? here's an explanation from where grep comes from. Explained by one of the inventor of UNIX Brian Kernighan.

    I use emacs for lisp coding since it'S the only thing I know of that provides a repl for it and is a sort of standard where I work anyway.

    I also use vim occasionally too.

    Emacs is a world of it's own though.

    @hasu is lisp worth learning, do you think? What's it usually used for?

    @j4cobgarby I think it is worth taking a look at, since it has a very different style and feel to it, so just to widen the spectrum it is worth looking into.

    It is used in our case for robot planning and I know that other people use it in some way for AI.

    To be honest, the worst thing when starting on lisp is learning how to handle emacs...

    @hasu I used to use emacs a lot, so that shouldn't be a problem, and I think I got a feel for lisp with the emacs config

    @j4cobgarby nice! There is a book where one programs little games in lisp in order to learn it. I don't remember the title right now... but I can look it up if you want. There are also tutorials out there and one free book, explaining lisp in more detail, although I found that one rather hard to start with but that depends on the style of learning one has

    @hasu that tutorial sounds good, if you can find it that'd be great but no problem if not

    I forgot `ed` even existed until just now.
