Don’t you realize how ugly Ruby syntax is?
Here is in 150 lines of lisp, a simplified lisp reader that is able to
read all the lisp syntax needed to write it.
Try to parse Ruby syntax in Ruby and see how useless a language it is.
I much prefer CL to Ruby, but this argument is useless. How many lines
of code do you need to read Brainfuck in Brainfuck?
(If you wanted to show the inferiority of Ruby to Common Lisp, the
shootout makes a much more compelling argument)
