Scheme88: Scheme84 ported to Common Lisp.
Scheme88 is a re-implementation of Indiana University's Scheme84
to run in Common Lisp. The port was developed at the Rice University
Department of Computer Science.
Major improvements include
(1) the inclusion of a correct hygienic macro expander for
Kohlbecker's extend-syntax [0, 1];
(2) the inclusion of new control operators, namely, F to grab
FUNCTIONAL continuations, and RUN (or the syntactic abbreviation #>),
to delimit the extent of control operations [2, 3];
(3) an on-line help facility that provides simple descriptions of
built-in functions and syntactic forms.
(No longer exists. Now available from Scheme Repository only.)
Version: 0.4 (28-JUL-91)
Ports: Runs in Ibuki CL, but should be easy to port to other
Common Lisp implementations.
