lisp->C case histories
I am compiling case histories of large lisp programs that were
translated into C. I am interested in things like:
How large (lines or chars) lisp version was
What the program did
How long the translation effort took in person years
Performance of resulting C version compared to lisp
faster? how much?
smaller? how much?
functionality? how much?
commerciality? how many more sold?
(i dont really think C will be on the `better' end of all
these metrics, but that's the prevailing wisdom ...
counter-examples WELCOME, one reason for survey)
I want to keep each case description short, more like an entry in a
matrix with 7+-2 slots. Suggestions for other slots would be welcome.
If there are interesting replies, I will compile and send back to
slug. Better yet, if someone has already done this -- seems like one
of the lisp vendors should have -- just send me a copy.
