Then you probably want to be posting to comp.lang.scheme. Down here we
are focussed on the specifics of a specific Scheme dialect called Scsh
(rhymes with fish).

It's a way better language. It's even better than that if you're using
a lisp-friendly editor (that knows how to indent and match parrens)

Lots easier. The language is built out of a few, highly orthogonal
concepts, as opposed to C++ which has ideas tacked on willy-nilly.

There's quite a lot of information available on the web. The best
portal to it is at <http://www.schemers.org>. You'll probably want to
read _How to Design Programs_ and _The Scheme Programming
Language_. If you want to become a *good* programmer in any language
you'll need to work through _Structure and Interpretation of Computer
Programs_, but that can wait until you're ready for it.
