@lisp @commonlisp

Why don't more languages implement a condition system like common-lisp's, or dylan's, or smalltalk's?

Follow up question:
How essential is it to you to program in the debugger?

Hi all, I'm new at mastodon in general. I'm a lisper (mainly common lisp, novice schemer, love all the lisps). I work with Igalia's compiler team on WebAssembly formal spec and WebAssembly support in Firefox (c++). Free Open Source Software proponent, and free open knowledge for everyone. I am also a logician, used to work on set theory years ago.

Thanks @phoe for introducing me to functional cafe! Looking forward to fun times talking about any dialect.
