Sorcerer's spell and programming


#1

维基百科对SICP的词条注释用的是wizard这个词

Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs ( SICP ) is a computer science textbook by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professors Harold Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman with Julie Sussman. It is known as the Wizard Book [1] in hacker culture.[2] It teaches fundamental principles of computer programming, including recursion, abstraction, modularity, and programming language design and implementation.

Textbook里的高频词汇是sorcerer,
歪楼查了查词源,
sorcery与Sort是同一词源ser,

真乃意外之喜,

两个领域的 apprentice都要从sort起步.

记得看过一部很古老的动画片(可能是’木偶奇遇记’), 里面的善良的白胡子老巫师, 施用魔法帮一个小孩子洗碗, (锅)碗瓢盆, 在空中排成一队,

竟然搜不到这个场景和图片.

按照 DND 之类世界观的解释,Wizard 是后天学习的需要按日记忆任意法术的法师,Sorcerer 是自然领悟但只能用有限种类法术的术士

之前群里有讨论说这本书super fundamental, 似乎跟幼儿园学数数一二三四五一样基础. 在几个大群里做了个简单实验, 发现没有一个人读过.

我也没有上过幼儿园,不妨碍我上小学 :joy:

闲的看这本书还不如直接写lisp实在,手操几个宏你就习得那本书精髓了
