Getting Started

If you're new to LFE and haven't read the LFE Quick Start, that might be a good idea to do that -- you'll feel much more comfortable with the material in this book if you have. If you never encountered a Lisp before, or if your familiarity is rusty, we'd recommend reading through the original Casting SPELs in Lisp. That version is more accessible to the Lisp new-comer.

That said, the next few sections will walk you through the steps necessary to be able to run the code in the rest of this book.
