“Programming Language for Old Timers (PLOT) is a new dialect of Lisp designed by Dave Moon in February 2006, and thoroughly revised and simplified November 2007 and March 2008.

You know it is right when both simplicity and power are maximized, while at the same time confusion and the need for kludges are minimized.”
A LISP-style programming language by David A. Moon.

My jaw dropped a little. I blurted "What?!" ’
