WCL: Wade's CL, a shared library implementation of Common Lisp

WCL is an implementation of Common Lisp for Sparc based workstations. WCL provides a large subset of Common Lisp as a Unix shared library that can be linked with Lisp and C code to produce efficient and small applications. For example, the executable for a Lisp version of the canonical ``Hello World!'' program requires only 40k bytes under SunOS 4.1 for SPARC. WCL provides CLX R5 as a shared library, and comes with PCL and a few other utilities. The binary for wgdb is included in the sunos4 binary distribution.
