Last thread died.
Was wondering what were your guys' top programs you use in your daily life.
Last thread was pretty good and I even got some new and awesome programs from it.
I'd use vim as editor, but I need more training.
I'd use sxiv instead of eog, but I cant figure out to start it centered.
netbeans (c++, php, inb4 php; i only use it when absolutely necessary)
that mostly includes stuff i do for work. at home you can take out remmina, pidgin, and slack
rtorrent (best torrent client i have ever used. starts fast, works fast, simple)
mpv (lightweight video player. plus youtube-dl, completely replaced flash for me because it performs ten times better)
elinks (tabs, 256 color, feature rich, lightweight)
cmus (i work in the shell a lot clearly, this allows me to run music in a separate workspace while i do whatever)
vim (lightweight editor that is relatively easy to learn)
urxvt (best terminal emulator, light weight with unicode support and what else could you need)
lftp (all the features i need in an ftp client and is reliable)
SBCL is generally screwy as hell compared to CLISP. I'll take a small (yes, small) speed penalty if it means I can program faster. CLISP also works a shitload of places SBCL won't, like my sparc64 OpenBSD system, ARM of various stripes. At one point I tried porting it to Haiku OS but gave up when I realized libsigsegv wasn't ported yet.

I have had issues with READ-LINE in it before.
For some reason, output wouldn't come until I gave the input which was intended to come after.
I never did fix it. I just used CLISP.

I've had problems with CLISP not being ported to OpenBSD systems I need, but it's a really obscure setup.
I mostly want to leave CLISP because of the principle. There's a reason I always use -q.
That's not being shallow.
It is the reason I'm looking for an alternative, yes.
I will not use CLISP when I have found a different implementation and then set it up with SLIME properly.
>That's not being shallow.
You're changing Lisp interpreters because of a piece of ASCII art that even the authors say isn't intended as advocating for Judaism. alias clisp='clisp -q' goes in the bashrc and you're done.
You guys are funny. I know for a fact the program you all use the most is provided by the NSA. You just don't know it.
