Okay, here's a deal: you give us 10% of Microsoft's marketing budget,
and we produce nice commercials, slick logos, brochures, coffee mugs,

Why Lisp? http://lisp.tech.coop/RtL%20Highlight%20Film
Recommended Common Lisp libraries/tools (see also http://clrfi.alu.org):
- ASDF/ASDF-INSTALL: system building/installation
- CL-PPCRE: regular expressions
- UFFI: Foreign Function Interface
