MacLisp definition language
A dialect of Lisp
developed at MIT
AI Lab in 1966, known for its efficiency and programming facilities. MacLisp was later used by Project MAC
. It ran on the PDP-10
. It introduced the LEXPR (a function with variable arity
, and CATCH/THROW.
MacLisp was one of two main branches of LISP (the other being Interlisp
). In 1981 Common LISP
was begun in an effort to combine the best features of both.
