Lisp -  (LISt Processing) - a pretty old programming language, commonly used for artificial intelligence (AI) programming.  Here some simple examples:
(write-line "Hello, world.") ;Print the famous greeting.

;;; A function to produce the factorial of an integer.
(defun factorial (n)
   (if (= n 1)
     (* (factorial (- n 1)) n)))

Lisp was developed in 1959 by John McCarthy, it is still in wide use.
