Embeddable Common-Lisp: has an interpreter and can compile to C


ECL stands for Embeddable Common-Lisp. The ECL project is an effort to modernize Giuseppe Attardi's ECL environment to produce an implementation of the Common-Lisp language which complies to the ANSI X3J13 definition of the language.

The current ECL implementation features:

 * A translator to C.
 * A UFFI-compatible interface to C code.
 * A dynamic loader.
 * The possibility to build standalone executables and DLLs.
 * The Common-Lisp Object System (CLOS).
 * Conditions and restarts for handling errors.
 * Sockets as ordinary streams.
 * The GNU Multiprecision library for fast bignum operations.
 * A simple conservative mark & sweep garbage collector.
 * The Boehm-Weiser garbage collector.
