MCS: Meta Class System, a portable object-oriented extension to Common Lisp.

MCS (Meta Class System) is a portable object-oriented extension to Common Lisp. It integrates the functionality of CLOS (the Common Lisp Object System), and TELOS, (the object system of LeLisp Version 16 and EuLisp). MCS provides a metaobject protocol which the user can specialize. MCS has been used successfully for the development of the commercial software product Babylon, an expert system development workbench that includes a hybrid knowledge representation language and many tools like editors and browsers. If you use MCS, send Juergen a short email message, so that you will be notified when updates are available.
