lisp - lisp interpreter
Lisp is a lisp interpreter for a dialect which closely resembles MIT's MACLISP. This lisp, known as FRANZ LISP, features an I/O facility which allows the user to change the input and output syntax, add macro characters, and maintain compatibility with upper-case only lisp systems; infinite precision integer arithmetic, and an error facility which allows the user to trap system errors in many different ways. Interpreted functions may be mixed with code compiled by liszt (1) and both may be debugged using the ``Joseph Lister'' trace package. A lisp containing compiled and interpreted code may be dumped into a file for later use.
There are too many functions to list here; one should refer to the manuals listed below.
An early version was written by Jeff Levinsky, Mike Curry, and John Breedlove. Keith Sklower wrote and is maintaining the current version, with the assistance of John Foderaro. The garbage collector was implemented by Bill Rowan.

The error system is in a state of flux and not all error messages are as informative as they could be.
