now it almost works

it gives me an error "invalid coding system iso-8859-15"
I have tried also iso-8859-1 now I will do other tries

I confess you that years ago I studied lisp in a AI course.
My best program was a 8 queen solver.
I took an example of prof or book or in internet I do not remember with 4
goto, but in my mind it was not an example of functional programming...
I rewrited it (with a lot of pain) in a self modifyng lisp code (the main
function build and returned a (function) to itself. If the (function) had
some code in it it executed the code, it it was empty the program had
The professor liked my code, but then I forgot lisp and "'" "quote" and
other things

Perhaps 10 years ago these things were not in internet?

Any way it is 15 years that I am happy to use emacs to write my code.
I like it very much: syntax highlighting, follow mode, flyspell-mode (if it
works), etc etc etc
