Haskellish LISP dialect.


You'll need to install node first.

If you want to get the most up-to-date build, then clone this directory and build from source.

$ git clone https://github.com/L8D/whip.git
# ...
$ cd whip
$ cake build
$ sudo npm install -g


Running the whip command with no arguments will start the REPL interpreter. Otherwise use whip <filename> on .whp files to execute them.

$ whip -h
Usage: whip [option] [filename]

  -p  print parsed code and exit
