Abstract : CMU Common Lisp is an implementation of that Common Lisp is currently supported on MIPS-processor DECstations, Sparc-based workstations from Sun and the IBM RT PC, and other ports are planned. All architectures are supported under Mach, a Berkeley Unix 4.3 binary compatible operating system. The Sparc is also supported under SunOS. The largest single part of this document describes the Python compiler and the programming styles and techniques that the compiler encourages. The rest of the document describes extensions and the implementation dependent choices made in developing this implementation of Common Lisp. We have added several extensions, including a source level debugger, an interface to Unix system calls, a foreign function call interface, support for interprocess communication and remote procedure call, and other features that a good environment for developing Lisp code.
