    Could you (or someone else) please elaborate more on that ? So far on my
research on computer graphics I could not see it as being mostly symbolic
computation. Some specific algorithms and applications yes, but not most of
it (nor even close). And I've seen some reports on LISP being used for CG,
mostly in procedural techniques. Could you please point out where have you
seen other uses of functional languages on computer graphics ? Thanks.
