 to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

 Rahul Jain Presents: DefDoc, A TEX-inspired, Lisp-based document
 processing system

    Lisp was originally designed for symbolic processing. Syntax
    manipulation is the most commonly used aspect of Lisp's symbolic
    processing capabilities currently.  The defmacro form provided by
    Common Lisp allows one to define new language forms which have full
    access to the symbolic information of the code within their
    bodies. Within the macro definiton, the entire facilities of the
    Common Lisp language may be used, including any other functions or
    macros you have defined.  This model is extremely powerful, and many
    advanced techniques for using it are explained in Paul Graham's book,
    "On Lisp"
