Lisp machines are general-purpose computers designed to efficiently run Lisp as their main software and programming language, usually via hardware support. Putting an interpreter “in between” and calling that “bare metal” is just another jargon corruption that has become all to common in the computing field. Common Lisp is a Lisp 2. I was already wondering what you might have meant by FAST. There are a couple of good tricks, but mostly you can think of it as JIT’ing to threaded code. Such use of “bare metal” devalues the meaning of the expression, I think it’s incorrect to use it in this case.

Second we want to minimize the amount of additional circuitry required to make the keyboard work (hopefully, this will only involve line drivers/receivers, and only when keyboards are far away from the LISP machine). (tak (tak (- x 1) y z) This quantum lambda calculus combines the benefits of both quantum circuits and the quantum Turing machine, and describes functions that may be composed and manipulated algebraically, like quantum circuits. On listing 2, you can see a call to array-dimension which retrieves the array's rst rank size (no need to store this information in a data structure as in C). A friend had a spectrum emulator that he wrapped up in some other code* and ran on bare metal. Yes there are many very good Linux on small board, IOT-focused products, but this is a slightly different tack. For bare-metal LISP, it has its own serial, SD-card, etc drivers. 1 – 5 M-cycles, which amounts to up to 24 TStates per instruction, which often times amounts to more due to wait states. Scheme, another popular Lisp dialect, evaluates the first item in the list as a variable, looking up its function-pointer value. These include standalone languages and well as languages built inside applications. But you get the idea. But rather than rewriting GPL in 9900 machine code they wrote an interpreter and to make things worse, they wrote TI BASIC so that it has to first be interpreted to GPL then to 9900 code. 11:27:31 In his 1950 research paper, Turing's "imitation gam… 3.482 seconds of real time However, many recent machine learning libraries are coded in more mainstream languages, for example TensorFlow is coded in C++ & Python. * tagged architecture * stack-oriented architecture with large stack buffers * hardware assisted GC * support for generic Lisp operators.

By 1979, the Lisp Machine Project at MIT, originated and headed by Greenblatt, had constructed over 30 CADR computers for various projects at MIT. When you don’t have to support all of Linux and all of the layers of software on top of that, a simpler processor and computer architecture can give your system-is-the-language solution and the applications you develop, direct, immediate access to the underlying machine, like console computers, but also like PCs running DOS, and the whole feel of the machine is pretty snappy, very low latency.

However this thing isn’t even close, it’s just a run of the mill 8 bit micro running a run of the mill LISP interpreter. no, “bare metal” means there is nothing in between. For example a simple + operator. I’ll try to fix that. (define tak So a GPL CPU would be an interesting curiosity, unless someone was building a super duper mega 99-4/A compatible computer. The editors on the Lisp Machines were versions of Emacs written entirely in Lisp. (lambda (n) Stefan wrote a reply on Mini WiFi/BLE 4WD robot platform. GitHub is home to over 50 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together. TI Extended BASIC is in 9900 code. just plug in a mouse, keyboard, monitor and power and you are good to go. (nlprint (time))))". The MIT/LMI/TI Lisp Machines didn't have a special memory system or any special hardware to handle tags in parallel with other operations. download the GitHub extension for Visual Studio.

So the eZ80 at 50 MHz, with a large amount of zero-wait-state SRAM available, turns out to be a good choice for a Lisp console computer. But has anyone ported (and released) CP/M for ez80 yet? The chip was chosen because it is capable, efficient, and inexpensive, the same reasons people choose their other favorite micro-controllers. If you look at the uLisp benchmarks, tak is quoted at 49 seconds on an AtMega at 16 MHz. THEN, what language do I want to use ? If YOU built a better LISP SBC then tell us about it otherwise, rather than distract about how it isn’t a supercomputer on a stamp, talk about what the card does or just gaze in a bit of awe…. What’s that other credit-card sized computer you can get? wcr has added ARMACHAT - Doomsday wireless QWERTY communicator to SO ON. (if (< y x) Thanks for your question ! Smith-Corona Ultrasonic I Plus, 1983. You signed in with another tab or window. With that being said all those other layers above the “bare-metal” is what makes everything more useful…like a LISP OS. Curiously, Lisp has been associated with machine-learning since before R or Python were even born, but is incredibly rare to come by these days in any discipline. Well, can you run these benchmarks on it as post the results in mis so we can see how it measures up? So the point is not so much to recreate or rival the Lisp Machines of old, but to build a different mousetrap for computer science education and personal use, and I have chosen to provide a Lisp as part of that toolkit, and as part of the approach. (if ( (benchtak) We use essential cookies to perform essential website functions, e.g. That was just a prototype, though, but the MakerLisp business card-sized computer still features the Zilog eZ80 running at 50MHz. Macintosh, 1984 n Later ones used a descendant of ZWEI, named, more prosaically, ZMACS. It’s an interpreter with a JIT engine that cracks open Lisp expressions into small primitives to execute code in an SECD-style virtual machine. Today that could be pulled off with a FPGA and would be a worthwhile project to attempt for the skilled maker. But this chip sort of has a foot in both the micro-controller world of today and the traditional microprocessor world. To me, “:Lisp on Bare Metal” means, as others have noted, that Lisp itself is the OS and environment, and yes, this product is meant to be very similar in nature, in its look and feel, to the Basic language console computers like the Sinclair, Tandy Color Computer, and so many others from that era – except that the language which is the system is a dialect of Lisp. “MacLisp” family Machines 1975 The CONS prototype (MIT) 1977 The CADR aka MIT Lisp Machine (MIT) 1980 LM-2 Symbolics Lisp Machine, repackage CADR LMI Lisp Machine same as CADR 1982 L-Machine - Symbolics 3600, later 3640, 3670 1983 LMI Lambda TI Explorer same as LMI Lambda 1984 G-Machine - Symbolics 3650 1986 LMI K-Machine 1987 I-Machine, Symbolics XL-400, Macivory I TI Explorer-II - u … It became technically feasible to build cheaper hardware that would run lisp better than on timeshared computers. IMS the original Symbolics LISP machines had a microcoded instruction set optimized for LISP and even had some functions in hardware. Nothing to brag about. Bare-metal LISP means its running LISP on the processor AS the operating system, not UNDER an operating system. Without virtual memory and cache effects, which can be a huge tax on applications, the performance is better than you might expect from a 50 MHz processor. Yes, we all want a Lisp machine. We first saw the MakerLisp Machine in its raw prototype form at VCF West last August, and it was in a very, very raw state. Deep learning libraries are mostly coded in C++ or Python or C (and sometimes using OpenCL or Cuda for GPU computing parts). Tonder has also implemented, in Scheme (a dialect of Lisp… Lisp Machine 用 Lisp 做汇编指令纯属误传,虽然编译器能将 Lisp 编译成机器指令,也可以将机器转回人可读的 Lisp 代码,从某种角度来说,Lisp 处于直接和机器指令之间转换的层次,和现在常见的计算机的汇编是类似的。但说 Lisp Machin 用 Lisp 做汇编是不… 阅读全文 Who knows maybe it is even faster? It’s not a replacement for Raspberry Pi boards and the like, but if it strikes a chord with you, please give it a look :). I’d say it’s interesting in its own right – but it is a little misleading to explain that Lisp machines were designed to run Lisp efficiently – and then go on to discuss a project that is, as you say, a Lisp interpreter on a normal Micro. Remember that we are using 1D linear arrays to … A few years later, though, the Mac had a Lisp card. –88–, A Dell M6800 (a few years old, but still a fairly capable machine, one might actually consider for developing software – Lisp or otherwise – on, is about 25000 (twenty-five THOUSAND) times faster: Really not at all what I expected from the title. Other (non-Symbolics) LISP Machines. Computer languages have always advanced faster than computer hardware. Work fast with our official CLI. Moon Allanl C. Wechsler T''his 'lcuirlment is a daf't cOpy' of a p'orion of the J.isp Machine window S m uanILal. That’s 81 seconds for 10 iterations, both times, or about 8.1 seconds for one (tak 18 12 6), self-measured like this. Now what would be cool would be to have a small board running an old school lisp machine system, mounted in a box with a bunch of keys on top for all the extra ones that arent on a normal keyboard. The MakerLisp Machine is a portable, modular computer system, designed to recapture the feel of classic computing, with modern hardware. Because this is a credit card-sized computer, there is of course an expansion board that breaks everything out, including the GPIOs. In the 1940s and '50s, Alan Turing defined what it would look like for intelligent machines to emulate human intelligence; that's what we now call the Turing Test. /emg/ - Friendly Emacs/Lisp General - "/g/ - Technology" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing computer hardware and software, programming, and general technology. (Just toogle a pin and measure it using a scope or logic analyser) That does not make it a bare-metal Spectrum – even though it quite happily sits there letting you play Manic Miner – it makes it a bare-metal Spectrum emulator. A Lisp which can associate two or more different kinds of things at the same time with a symbol is called a Lisp 2. I aim to develop an open platform. They could also implement one on top of Xen, there is already an example of an ocaml machine called MirageOS. The one that runs Linux? Executing an 8086 machine code program under MSDOS is infinitely more “bare-metal” than this “LISP machine”. CNC programmers write instructions for CNC machines, where a computer is connected to the mill, along with electrical drives and sensors for a complete system. The recommended textbook for MIT's undergrad robotics course is Artificial Intelligence by Patrick Henry Winston.By the 2nd edition the programming chapters of that book branched into their own, synchronized, book -- Lisp. This sort of thing tends to happen when a programmer wannabe tries to justify what they have done rather than understand what is already in place and work within that framework. Besides the flash memory for code, it also has an external memory bus for both code and data, and uses the classic Microprocessor (Intel/Zilog) bus interfaces. A factor of 3 is due to clock frequency, most likely, and a factor of two is the combination of the JIT Lisp interpreter and the performance characteristics of the eZ80 and this hardware. Learn more. This machine runs tak a little more than 6 times faster.

I’d argue that it wasn’t an OS. In the 1800s, computer science pioneers Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace imagined an analytical engine capable of predictions far beyond human skills, such as correctly selecting the winning horse in a race. Third, it would be nice to have the mouse interfaced via … (progn And yes, by that definition, the ZX Spectrum does run bare-metal BASIC. should be on a far more powerful up for the trouble…. wcr has added A full scale, working Fallout Terminal replica to SO ON. NIL Fast drawing for everyone. wcr has added MIPI DSI Display Shield/HDMI Adapter to SO ON. Learn Lisp, in an implementation and dialect made just for “Lisp on Bare Metal” educational/DIY projects. How about a bubble-gum wrapper sized computer? Apple IIe, 1983. http://www.shaels.net/index.php/mic80/mic80-general/38-mico-overview, It’s coming, to this machine, very soon :). I think I am turning the question around – I have not so much chosen a Z80, on which to run Lisp, as I have picked this particular (e)Z80 at 50 MHz as a chip around which to to build a modern hardware, vintage-styled software machine, economically and efficiently, and the micro-controller and ease of use in an Arduino-like learning environment is a big part of the equation. In Lisp, arrays can be multidimensional. So this is ***NOT*** a “bare-metal LISP machine”. With regard to actual implementations, you can have a look at the paper "Design of LISP-based Processors, or SCHEME: A Dielectric LISP, or Finite Memories Considered Harmful, or LAMBDA: The Ultimate Opcode" by Sussman and Steele. You can get Lisp on Linux, right? It was a delight. The MakerLisp system is written in portable C, and it just-in-time (JIT) interprets a tiny core language. When you click the Execute button, or type Ctrl+E, LISP executes it immediately and the result returned is − 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 lisp_loops.htm Thinking machines have been a curiosity for centuries, long before they could be realized. and be used for many more tasks. It is a sign of Lisp’s usefulness that there are so many different versions of it. If nothing happens, download Xcode and try again. Learn how your comment data is processed. Anyhow, the machine is meant to recapture the look and feel of computers of that era, some of the same design aesthetics, but re-implemented in (more) modern hardware fabric. Well, Lisp can be immediate and practical on such bare metal, and this implementation is geared for that. Then, Common Lisp (and other dialects of Lisp) is great for symbolic AI. The Lisp function for creat- ing arrays is make-array. We’re living in the future here. Case in point: we’re just now getting CPU instructions for JavaScript floating point numbers. Emacs Lisp is also a Lisp 2. Lisp Machines, Inc. was a company formed in 1979 by Richard Greenblatt of MIT 's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to build Lisp machines. These are modern microcontrollers and can run at 50Mhz. Millions of developers and companies build, ship, and maintain their software on GitHub — the largest and most advanced development platform in the world. they're used to gather information about the pages you visit and how many clicks you need to accomplish a task. With its built-in USB/UART connection to a terminal emulator, and a micro-SD card for your files, put it in your shirt pocket and take your “Lisp world” with you wherever you go. 3.482035 seconds of total run time (3.481759 user, 0.000276 system) So it’s about 75 to 100 times the speed of a Z80. The original Z80 was 3 to 4 clocks per instruction. The eZ80 is a later (2003), modern, pipelined, re-implementation and extension of the Z80, by Zilog – it’s binary compatible with the Z80, but also has “big” mode bits, so that address and data can be 24 bits – and this allows an address space of 16 M. which is something that gives a fairly capable and complete Lisp system enough room to run. You can run http://www.ulisp.com on a ESP32 or a Cortex M4 btw…, I agree. And then of course there’s the possibility of CP/M on the machine, too. (lambda (x y z) It is programmers and systems developers who have failed. There is nothing stopping someone from implementing a Lisp Machine on x86, several people have done. Millions of developers and companies build, ship, and maintain their software on GitHub — the largest and most advanced development platform in the world. Learn more. The Lisp machine was able to execute instructions about as fast as those other machines, but each instruction — a car instruction would do data typechecking — so when you tried to get the car of a number in a compiled program, it would give you an immediate error. This computer controls the movement of the machine axis. Ok, the “LISP environment” might be running on “bare-metal” but the programs that you run in the environment (written in LISP) are only able to be executed by the “environment”. In the 80’s there were ads like this all the time a la “A lisp machine the size of a credit card” that title by itself is a vintage throw back. But on a benchmark like this, amortized over all the executions, the start-up time doesn’t impact us much. Here’s what the tak function looks like after it has run all paths of itself once: (#address (x y z) (GET20 GET10 LESS SELECT (EVALC (GET10 GET20 QUOTE 1 GET00 SUB GETB #address APPLY) EVALC (GET20 GET00 QUOTE 1 GET10 SUB GETB #address APPLY) EVALC (GET00 GET10 QUOTE 1 GET20 SUB GETB #address APPLY) GETB #address APPLY) (GET00))). (Note: All I know about Lisp (And Scheme – although all I could find about this is that it appears to be a dialect called “Skim”) could be written on the back of a postage stamp with a JCB). I’d like to see someone make a TI GPL CPU with an FPGA. It took more than 30 years, but [Alex] and [Martin] figured out a way to turn the lowly Apple IIe into a Lisp machine. Now there’s an interesting project on CrowdSupply that will make that possible. It’s not so much that the machine is there to run Lisp, but I think the right kind of Lisp implementation can make the most of the machine. Combine an interesting architecture with rarity and historical interest, and you have a centerpiece of any retrocomputing enthusiasts collection. Why, oh why, would one chose a Z80 for a Lisp machine? 11:26:16 “No, really.. the LISP environment is running on bare-metal because there’s no OS under it.”…. I use LISP every day, and in fact I am developing a next generation LISP machine, because LISP is the best language for symbolic computation, but using it on existing systems, whether Linux or Windows, is very inconvenient. Lisp machines were CPUs designed to run Lisp efficiently. THIS: https://dspace.mit.edu/handle/1721.1/6334 is bare-metal LISP. Emulators: a collection of Lisp Machine emulators can be found on unlambda.com. they're used to log you in. I fail to understand the confusion. So it wasn’t only me who was confused by “bare metal lisp” and also “Zilog eZ80 running at 50MHz”. (tak (- z 1) x y)) But I think this machine may be good for lots of things, and I will support CP/M and CP/M C language development as well. At the time of the start of C++, that was a little toddler compared to what we could do with the Lisp Machine. That’s why this discussion wouldn’t have blossomed into what it is, if an FPGA had been made into a LISP CPU. And it would be nice to have some more details about the interpreter, which, to me, is probably the more interesting bit. The MakerLisp dialect of Lisp is a Lisp with the Scheme model of expression evaluation, low-level macros and language functions with common Lisp spellings and semantics, C language arithmetic, and standard C library functions. LISP - Decision Making - Decision making structures require that the programmer specify one or more conditions to be evaluated or tested by the program, along with a statement or statem I hope this sheds some light. Not Z80 but eZ80 acclaim plus. It isn’t for everyone and doesn’t need to be. There’s a little bit of information about the machine both on the website http://cpmaker.com (the company name is meant to suggest CP/M for makers), and also on the crowd-funding page, and more information will be coming through the Crowd Supply offering soon. Jaap Weel's review of documentation that matters with respect to Lisp Machines. We use optional third-party analytics cookies to understand how you use GitHub.com so we can build better products. The standard platform for Lisp before Lisp machines was a timeshared PDP-10, but it was well known that one Lisp program could turn a timeshared KL-10 into unusable sludge for everyone else. Hypertext editions of the Lisp Machine Manual: Hans Hübner's … So in other words they are running a lisp interpreter on an antiquated microprocessor platform and are calling it a lisp machine? :), (define tak Oops, 82 seconds the first time, 81 seconds the next. MakerLisp JITs to SECD virtual machine instructions, so we have a kind of threaded primitive routine thing going on, it gets pretty good performance without creating compiled machine code directly. The LISP enabled router is deployed “on a stick,” meaning that it does not need to be the default gateway, and its interaction with the local infrastructure is based on Proxy-ARP. They were great, until the companies responsible realized you had to sell a product to stay in business. The Windfall Of Decommissioned Crypto Mining, Putting The Finishing Touches On A 60W Laser, Add Slots And Tabs To Your Boxes In FreeCAD, ESP32 Altair Emulator Gets Split Personality. With its built-in USB/UART connection to a terminal emulator, and a micro-SD card for your files, put it in your shirt pocket and take your “Lisp world” with you wherever you go. It was based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. > (benchtak) Being a Z80, you’re also going to get CP/M support, but the real story here is Lisp, in your pocket. see project MIC80 It’s not Arduino, it’s not Raspberry Pi, it’s kind of in the middle. Big iron for number crunching, it’s not, but I hope it will be enjoyable and effective in the uses people find for it. (looptak 10) Learn more, We use analytics cookies to understand how you use our websites so we can make them better, e.g. I’m confused by comments that someone could DO anything this SBC could do in software (X)* faster, but who G.A.S.? It’s a subtle (but important) difference. –>8– FWIW, the quoted 8.1s are about wice as long as the benchmark took on an original Symbolics LM-2 or about as fast as a PDP 11/780 with Franz Lisp was in the seventies. They are an example of a high-level language computer architecture, and in a sense, they … You can always update your selection by clicking Cookie Preferences at the bottom of the page. (tak (- y 1) z x) Hmm, something happened to my program listing as I pasted it in. Of COURSE you could run lisp on a raspberry pi which is also the size of a credit card, but THIS is a LISP machine, not an emulator. If nothing happens, download the GitHub extension for Visual Studio and try again. Thanks for the conversation ! Lisp machines are general-purpose computers designed to efficiently run Lisp as their main software and programming language, usually via hardware support. Putting an interpreter “in between” and calling that “bare metal” is just another jargon corruption that has become all to common in the computing field. Common Lisp is a Lisp 2. I was already wondering what you might have meant by FAST. There are a couple of good tricks, but mostly you can think of it as JIT’ing to threaded code. Such use of “bare metal” devalues the meaning of the expression, I think it’s incorrect to use it in this case. Formatting changed as I pasted it in, but hopefully you can see what it’s doing, self-timing a run of 10 tak invocations. Second we want to minimize the amount of additional circuitry required to make the keyboard work (hopefully, this will only involve line drivers/receivers, and only when keyboards are far away from the LISP machine). (tak (tak (- x 1) y z) This quantum lambda calculus combines the benefits of both quantum circuits and the quantum Turing machine, and describes functions that may be composed and manipulated algebraically, like quantum circuits. On listing 2, you can see a call to array-dimension which retrieves the array's rst rank size (no need to store this information in a data structure as in C). A friend had a spectrum emulator that he wrapped up in some other code* and ran on bare metal. Yes there are many very good Linux on small board, IOT-focused products, but this is a slightly different tack. For bare-metal LISP, it has its own serial, SD-card, etc drivers. 1 – 5 M-cycles, which amounts to up to 24 TStates per instruction, which often times amounts to more due to wait states. Scheme, another popular Lisp dialect, evaluates the first item in the list as a variable, looking up its function-pointer value. These include standalone languages and well as languages built inside applications. But you get the idea. But rather than rewriting GPL in 9900 machine code they wrote an interpreter and to make things worse, they wrote TI BASIC so that it has to first be interpreted to GPL then to 9900 code. 11:27:31 In his 1950 research paper, Turing's "imitation gam… 3.482 seconds of real time However, many recent machine learning libraries are coded in more mainstream languages, for example TensorFlow is coded in C++ & Python. * tagged architecture * stack-oriented architecture with large stack buffers * hardware assisted GC * support for generic Lisp operators. (lambda (x y z) I’m not sure about prefixed instructions, those could take even more. Yeah a bit confusing. * The code ran on bare metal had a some drivers (Notably screen, serial port and timer) and the only hardware resource manager it had was a very simple sbrk based malloc and free. Interesting, although part of the retro is the OS itself, like Genera. No, really.. the LISP environment is running on bare-metal because there’s no OS under it. I’d rather put a CP/M in it… then it coud be programmed in C, PL/I, Assembly, Pascal, Forth, Lisp…. If nothing happens, download GitHub Desktop and try again. 50 MHz pipelined. When I release the product the code will be out there so you will be able to see exactly what’s happening. AutoDraw pairs machine learning with drawings from talented artists to help you draw stuff fast. The basic board includes a USB port for a serial connection and a microSD card slot for storage. It’s got the Scheme execution model, but spelling and semantics of Common Lisp primitive functions, and Common Lisp-style low-level macros. It looks like fun for what it does. They were great, until the companies responsible realized you had to sell a product to stay in business. Lisp machines were CPUs designed to run Lisp efficiently. The 1970s and 80s wasn’t the garbage fire of JavaScript instructions in silicon, instead they were all about garbage collection. 9,379,410,406 processor cycles It’s 1986-1988, personal computer performance-wise, 2003 CPU architectural efficiency-wise, and competitive, price-wise, with today’s micro-controllers. The first two Lisp Machine Emacs, following the hacker tradition of recursive acronyms, were EINE and ZWEI, which stood for EINE Is Not Emacs and ZWEI Was EINE Initially. Operating the Lisp Machine l)avid A. It’s faster than most Lisp interpreters, not as fast as the most capable Lisp compilers. There is a software layer between the LISP programs and the actual hardware. All the schematics and code will be posted. What can you do with the MakerLisp Machine? So many problems were already solved by the early LISP machines. Too, the PC (even the little Mac) paled in comparison. By 1979, the Lisp Machine Project at MIT, originated and headed by Greenblatt, had constructed over 30 CADR computers for various projects at MIT. When you don’t have to support all of Linux and all of the layers of software on top of that, a simpler processor and computer architecture can give your system-is-the-language solution and the applications you develop, direct, immediate access to the underlying machine, like console computers, but also like PCs running DOS, and the whole feel of the machine is pretty snappy, very low latency. (tak 18 12 6) It boots into a Lisp environment, and you don’t even have to use a NuBus card. I don't it's accurate to was that Lisp WAS used for AI until the end of the 1980's.In the year 2016 MIT remains a fairly well-renowned institution in the field of AI. (if (zerop n) Many of the functions and macros in MakerLisp are loaded on demand from the SD card, so the start-up time includes both JIT time, which is pretty fast, and also SD card file load time. “fire?! Texas Instruments intended to do that for the 99-4 but was having problems, so they shoehorned in a modified version of their 16 bit 9900. We use optional third-party analytics cookies to understand how you use GitHub.com so we can build better products. 100.00% CPU The CPU is a Zilog eZ80 running at 50 MHz, which supports up to 16 MB of zero wait state RAM. What can you do with the MakerLisp Machine? 11:28:52. 11:24:54 0 bytes consed. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. The LISP-enabled router deployed within the enterprise data center does not need to be the default gateway for the local servers (physical and virtual machines). Evaluation took: http://www.ulisp.com/show?1EO1 The first Lisp Machines were using micro-coded processors with special instruction sets tailored for compiled and interpreted Lisp. Every Lisp expression is first expanded into a few VM instructions, which are themselves just implemented as short routines (in C, everything is in standard C89/C90), and then the list of VM instructions is executed, one at a time, until it’s time to crack the next bit of Lisp. 3-axis machining The most common CNC machines produced commercially. If people find it practical and fun, that’s the goal. We built the machine and had a Lisp operating system for it. z))), (define looptak Use Git or checkout with SVN using the web URL. LISP on Linux has the Linux kernel as its supporting OS. GitHub is where the world builds software. no this is PARC and I’ve just invented it”….
