       I recently received a sales packet from Chestnut Software, Inc., located
       in Boston, advertising a Lisp-to-C translator.  Anyone had any
       experience with them or their product?  Any other recommendations for a
       good Lisp to C translator?

    good question--I've just been looking for the same thing.  One thing
    I'm thinking about doing is porting Kyoto Common Lisp (basically a CL
    to C translator from what I've heard) to the amiga.  I have basically
    no idea yet what this entails since I just ftp'ed the KCL source and
    haven't had a chance to look at it...

It's NOT.  KCL and all of its derivatives (Ibuki & Austin included) do
compile CL code into C, but in a style that requires support from the
rest of the KCL system.  Don't expect to run a KCL compiled file
