Nice. Looks like I’m on the historical path to learning Java. I’m learning Emacs and Lisp and the guy that invented #Java later on, wrote the first #Unix compatible Emacs/Lisp. Like other things I get excited about, I often abandon without shame but I enjoy myself in the process [just so you know, I’m not recommending doing what I’m doing – just sharing the good time I’m having]
James Gosling, who would later invent NeWS and the Java programming language, wrote Gosling Emacs in 1981. The first Emacs-like editor to run on Unix, Gosling Emacs was written in C and used Mocklisp, a language with Lisp-like syntax, as an extension language.
