Reasoned Schemer Short overview

Fans of prolog and other logical programming languages will not be disappointed in this new book that just came. It deals with the extension of functional programming to include logic programming. It is presented in a dialogue manner that is easy to understand for beginners and advanced people. Reading the little or seasoned schemer books helps but is not required. All you need to know is functions can be passed as arguments to other functions and the syntax for let . The book is intended for beginners in logic programming and no prerequisites are needed. I highly recommend this book.

Lately I have been working on a website using siscweb. It is a really great framework that allows you to use scheme in a continuation web based framework. The resulting website can also be deployed in a J2EE application server which is different from other frameworks based in scheme which require their own server. For more information see SISCweb website

Zobrist Hashing

Okay, this is a new post in awhile. Currently I have read through the little schemer and done most of the exercises. I have also moved on and am currently reading the the seasoned schemer. I will put the Beyond Lisp idea on hold until I can get to the the reasoned schemer . Lately I have been programming parts of a Go AI. I am planning for this AI eventually to use (warning PDF) Termite so that it is able to distribute the AI across many systems as possibly a multi agent system.

Currently the part that I have programmed is a zobrist hashing program at zobirist hashing program As you can see it stores the Goban as a list. And requires SRFI's 27 and 60 .
