Prolog, Lisp books

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in just a general reference manual for prolog and lisp, similar to the O'Reilly "...in a Nutshell" series. I don't want to wade through chapter upon chapter of "what's a variable", etc., that so many programming books get into because they assume a beginner level reader. I currently have a general AI book (it's fairly good, but I rarely read it), but it's sections on lisp and prolog are quite limited. Any particular online references that are exceptionally good? Again, I find myself finding mostly tutorial tracks that assume beginners.

I suggest "ANSI Common Lisp" by Paul Graham (ISBN: 0-13-370875-6). It is almost exactly what you ask for: It is _NOT_ an introduction to programming at all but it teaches Common Lisp extremely well and is filled with awesome examples and even a huge function reference at the end sorted by categories (ie string functions, file functions, sequence functions, etc).

I second that. It's possibly my favorite programming book.

Personally, I'm having difficulties in Lisp... I simply can't understand ANYTHING AT ALL about Objecto Oriented Programming... Does anyone know any online tutorial or book related to this subject?

Welcome to the boards, Annie. PM me and we'll talk about OOP, though I don't know anything in regards to Lisp, yet.

You should start another thread, though not in AI obviously, about your specific troubles. Any decent book on Lisp should cover the subject and obviously a search will pull up general instructions.
