Subject: DOS LISPS


People interested in DOS LISP:  sorry about the delay in my response
-- deadlines & such.  I'm mailing to the net and cc'ing to people who
wrote me specifically.

Summary of DOS Lisp Packages

Note: I have phone numbers for most of these.  A good source for most
of these is The Programmer's Shop (phone 800-421-8006); they have them
discounted somewhat from these list prices.  Also, I can't find my
IQCLisp sheet, so that entry is from memory.
