Hi there i'm just wondering if anybodyon this forum knows what edscheme is . it goes something like this. (define Random_List (lambda () (Help_List (random 100) (random 100) '()))) (define Help_List (lambda (C R Acc) (cond [(zero? C) Acc] [else (Help_List (sub1 C) (random 100) (cons R Acc))]))) Yeah pretty much like that !!!! So ?....

It''s a Scheme variant. Scheme''s a programming language, like C, C++, etc.

Scheme is what''s called a functional programming language, so it ends up looking very different that C or Basic (Which are imperitive programming languages)

You probably don''t want to use it for writing games. It''s not really suited for that type of application.

Abuse uses some Lisp dialect (Scheme is a dialect of Lisp) for AI/script code. So it can be usefull in games, but perhaps not as the main/engine language.
