Summary: You can run a full-blown Lisp on the laptop, but we haven't yet hooked it into the graphics and other capabilities of the system.
Steel Bank Common Lisp is available by typing (in the Terminal activity):
su yum install sbcl
su yum install emacs exit wget http://common-lisp.net/project/slime/slime-2.0.tgz tar xvzf slime-2.0.tgz
Start emacs via
Edit ~/.emacs to include:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/slime-2.0/") (require 'slime) (setq inferior-lisp-program "/usr/bin/sbcl") (slime-setup)
will give you a Lisp listener
This package may make it possible to access Python libraries from Lisp.
These packages allow access to GTK bindings from Lisp.
Whether or not LISP is appropriate for children is up to both the teachers and the children.
