comment Does Lisp still have any special feature which has NOT been adopted by other programming languages?
@iceX: Many languages have eval or similar, and quite a few can do metaprogramming, e.g. Haskell's Template Haskell. The (arguably) unique thing about Lisp is that the representation for data, code, and meta-code is same - not just in syntax, but it really is the same thing.

comment Difference between trigger, handler and callback
@nouney: it's a conceptual difference more than a technical one. 'Callback' refers to the technical mechanism of passing function A to function B, and then having B call A as part of its processing. 'Handler' highlights the intent that some sort of event is handled; this is often done with callbacks, but there are other mechanisms that one can use for this.
