Knights of the Lambda-Calculus

A semi-mythical organisation of wizardly LISP and Scheme

hackers. The name refers to a mathematical formalism invented

by Alonzo Church, with which LISP is intimately connected.

There is no enrollment list and the criteria for induction are

buttons and, in general, the *members* know who they are.
