Anyone here use Lisp?

| I've been toying around with Common Lisp and Racket and I'm not sure which I like better.

Aaaaah you beat me to it

| Haha, I should have put that in my original comment! Apparently, old Lisps would end with 80 or so ')' just to make sure that there were enough.

correct! lisp is self-aware of being overloaded with parentheses, so it just accepts as many additional parentheses as ya give it.
though that usually just looks really fucking messy and offworldish, making the super parenthese or ] useful as hecc; it essentially just makes up for as many closing parentheses as you need.

It looks so exotic and outlandish

| >>582855 Huh, I didn't know about the "super parentheses". Is that part of Common Lisp, or a different one?

fairly certain it's a Common Lisp thing, but it does pop up in other dialects. Interlisp, off the top of my head.
