RefLisp: Reference-counting Lisp Interpreter

RefLisp is a small Lisp interpreter. Versions exist for MS-DOS and UNIX (AIX). The MS-DOS version supports CGA/EGA/VGA graphics and the Microsoft Mouse. The interpreter is a shallow-binding (i.e., everything has dynamic scope), reference counting design making it suitable for experimenting with real-time and graphic user interface programming. Common Lisp compatibility macros are provided, and most of the examples in "Lisp" by Winston & Horn have been run on RefLisp. RefLisp makes no distinction between symbol-values and function-values, so a symbol can be either but not both. RefLisp comes with an ASCII manual and many demonstration programs, including an analogue clock which never stops for garbage collection. There is also a program profiler.
