    Thanks for the pointer. Unfortunately there is a little problem
with this... I've tried that three weeks ago... No change... :) :) :)

    Below is the contents of the first section of my first laboratory
(the links are missing from the text as I've copy pasted, but at the
end I've also put my lab link). Indeed what you say there fits
perfectly as a case pro functional programming (pro Lisp).
Unfortunately we need a lot of good will from our students to actually
read and understand all these ideas. (Maybe a quiz from all those good
essays... :) :) )

    Thanks again,

Optional (but highly recommended) reading
