The source-code of the free book PicoLisp Works

PicoLisp Works is a compilation of (almost) all available information about the technological gem PicoLisp - a programming language and environment that definitely deserves wider attention.

Built on the unique characteristics of Lisp (almost no syntax, code is equivalent to data), PicoLisp combines powerful abstractions with simplicity and purity.

In a software world that is driven by hypes and desillusions, a language like PicoLisp almost appears as timeless as mathematics. With its roots in the very beginning of programming language development (Lisp was, together with Fortran, among the very first of its kind), PicoLisp may well represent the future too - as a candidate for being the hundred-year language, that all programming languages finally converge into.

PicoLisp Works is accompanied by a second volume, PicoLisp by Example, (https://github.com/tj64/picolisp-by-example) with more than 600 PicoLisp solutions to a wide range of programming tasks as well as the full PicoLisp function reference. Both volumes are freely available as pdf files, e.g. on Scribd.
