I've been looking for ways to learn Arc on my own but basically it turned out to better join the forum.|
I started to like LISP when i first got the interest in AI programming, where i found my way all around programming languages used in AI programming -- one got my attention, LISP.
I've read and read all about LISP since then but never formally started coding and learning the language. Until i found it fitting to my taste to use Racket because it has an IDE, Dr Racket.
I did not go through so much coding in Racket, I simply made myself comfortable of the syntaxes of LISP programming and actually have with me Real Of Racket pdf file.
And then, i searched more of LISP, until i found Arc. This time i got so much attracted to its syntax so called to be shortened. And that amazed me.
So I started to want to install Arc today. BUT, unlike Racket it doesn't have an IDE. I'm only good in using Windows and not so much inclined in command prompts.
I find answers somehow that directs me to github, unfortunately i don't know how to use the files out there. What I ONLY know is instal .exe files and i'm okay byh myself, which is not the case this time. And there's so much of codings and command prompting.
Stil, i want to go through ... i don't know why but i like Arc so much even if it's too obscure to my level.
I wish someone here tell me how to actually program in arc. do i need an IDE to compile and run/test my codes? (which is my only grasp of programming). and can anyone tell me how to use the Arc/Nu ... i don't know how to install it in my Windows... i don't know linux or unix or mac.
If anyone hear me in this dark and cold realm of Arc, please head my calling....
I want to improve Arc when i finally have my best of knowledge in it. Everybody is discouraging me of Arc but i believe it's something extraordinary.
Thanks in advance.
