I heard that lisp can either use dynamic or lexical scoping. I don't
know if this is the newsgroup to post the following question. If it is
not, I like to apologize.
My question is:
What is dynamic or lexical scoping? What are the advantages and
disadvantages of each?
I try reading it in books, but they are so vague on the subject.
