Public domain version of Franz Lisp.

This directory contains Franz Lisp Opus 38.92, as modified by Barry Schein for the Sun-3. The sources should work on the Sun-2 and other machines as well. The distribution includes the interpreter, compiler, cross reference program, a lisp library, on-line manual, and a troff manual. Also include is PEARL (Package for Efficient Access to Representations in Lisp), an AI programming language implemented on top of Franz Lisp by Joseph Faletti and Michael Deering under the direction of Robert Wilensky at the Berkeley AI Research Project (BAIR).

   With the demise of UCBVAX, the AI Repository has become
   the official archive site for the public domain version
   of Franz Lisp.
