There's some code floating around from DePaul University that claims to
be an implementation of Loop. I haven't seen this yet, so I don't know
whether it's robust, clean, complete, and so on. I also don't know for
sure whether it is public-domain. It apparently uses flavors, which
makes it less portable than would otherwise be the case.
I'll try to find out more about this. I just wanted to mention it
before anyone got rolling on a porting effort for Loop that might
duplicate some of the work the DePaul people have done.
I'd like to see this if you get a copy. On the other hand, the note that it
uses flavors makes me suspect that what you have is an implementation of LOOPS
rather than LOOP, which should go to the object-oriented programming group
rather than the iteration group!
