Hey all, A few years ago I remember reading a book (or a set of tutorials) online for either Common Lisp or Scheme. I remember it being referred to as the 'bible' for Common Lisp/Scheme, and for some reason I think its called the Red Book or the Blue Book or something along those lines. It was extremely helpful, and went quite in-depth on the 'behind-the-scenes' part of Common Lisp/Scheme. I tried searching the forums for it but had no success. Is anyone familiar with the book I am talking about? Do you know where I can find it? Thanks for any help!

I don't think that's the one... One thing I do remember is the book had little boxes with arrows to describe how cons and append and other various functions are different. Weird thing to remember, but for some reason it was memorable.

It's called box-and-pointer notation.

GLS's book is largely the bible for Common Lisp, though. I recommend it highly.

Could it be Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs by Abelson and Sussman? It's the wizard book and you can get it for free at MIT's website.
