An Alternative Global Variable Definition Function When you set the value of a global variable using defparameter, any value previously stored in the variable will be overwritten: > (defparameter *foo* 5) FOO > *foo* 5 C re a t i n g Y o u r F i r s t L i s p P r og r a m 23 > (defparameter *foo* 6) FOO > *foo* 6 As you can see, when we redefine the variable *foo*, its value changes. Another command that you can use for declaring global variables, called defvar, won’t overwrite previous values of a global variable: > (defvar *foo* 5) FOO > *foo* 5 > (defvar *foo* 6) FOO > *foo* 5 Some Lispers prefer to use defvar instead of defparameter when defining global variables.

For example, enter the following into your REPL: > (expt 2 3) 8 This calculates 2^3 = 8. It does this by calling expt, which computes an exponent. This command was entered in the standard way for Lisp: as a form with the function name at the beginning. When Lisp reads the text for the parameters of such a command, it usually assumes that these parameters are also in code mode. Here’s an example: > (expt 2 (+ 3 4)) 128 This example has two nested forms. Lisp first looks at the entire expression in code mode.

To call a function in Lisp, you put parentheses around it, along with any parameters you wish to give the function. Since these particular functions don’t require any parameters, we simply surround their names in parentheses when we enter them. Let’s think about the strategy behind this simple game. After a little thought, we come up with the following steps: 22 Chapter 2 1. Determine the upper and lower (big and small) limit of the player’s number. Since the range is between 1 and 100, the smallest possible number would be 1 and the biggest would be 100.
