Abstract:

Conventional wisdom has maintained that while LISP is suitable for the development of experimental software, it does not support production-quality systems well. This report describes a building-block approach where a complex system an intelligent Chinese language tutor was built in a LISP environment out of a series of powerful tools. The resulting system does not in any way sacrifice performance for power and flexibility.
