CLiCC: Common Lisp to C Compiler

CLiCC (Common Lisp to C Compiler) generates C-executables from Common Lisp application programs. CLiCC is not a Common Lisp system, and hence does not include any program development or debugging support. CLiCC is intended to be used as an add-on to existing Common Lisp systems for generating portable applications. CLiCC (version 0.6.2) can now compile itself to get a standalone compiler that may be used without a Lisp system. CLiCC supports CL_0, a subset of Common Lisp + CLOS, which excludes EVAL and related functions. At present CL_0 is based on CLtL1, but is headed towards CLtL2 and ANSI-CL. The generated C code (ANSI-C or K&R-C compatible) may be compiled using a conventional C compiler on the target machine, and must be linked with the CLiCC runtime library in order to generate executables. CLiCC has a foreign function interface. The generated C code is not readable in the sense of hand written C code. It results from a direct translation of abstract machine code to corresponding C constructs. The file contains the report documenting the CommonLisp0 and CLOS0 language (translated from German to English). The authors welcome suggestions and improvements and would appreciate receiving email even if you just used CLiCC successfully.
