GLISP: Alternate syntaxes for Common Lisp
Generalized Lisp (or Glisp for short) is a coordinated set of high
level syntaxes for Common Lisp. Initially GLisp consists of three
dialects: Mlisp, Plisp and ordinary Lisp, together with an extensible
framework for adding others. Mlisp (Meta-Lisp) is an Algol-like
syntax for people who don't like writing parentheses. For example,
one can write print("abc", stream) instead of (print "abc" stream).
Plisp (Pattern Lisp) is a pattern matching rewrite-rule language.
Plisp is a compiler-compiler; its rules are optimized for writing
language translators. All dialects may be freely intermixed in a
file. The translators for all dialects are written in Plisp, as is
the Glisp translator framework itself. Support routines for the
translators are written in Mlisp and/or Lisp. All dialects are
translated to Common Lisp and execute in the standard Common Lisp

Ports: GLISP runs in MCL and has to be modified for other
Common Lisp implementations.
