AWK Lisp: Lisp implemented in AWK

A Lisp interpreter implemented in Awk. It provides intrinsic versions of the basic functions on s-expressions, and many others written in LISP. The interpreter has thirteen built-in functions: car, cdr, cons, eq, atom, set, eval, error, quote, cond, and, or, list. These include the five elementary functions on s-expressions defined by McCarthy; some conditional expression operators; an assignment operator, and some functions to control the evaluation process.
