Test of mailing list; Lisp-to-C conversion line conversion
[Administrative note: I'm converting the SLUG, COMMON-LISP, etc. mailing
lists to run on a different host. I'm sending this message on the *NEW*
host and shortly sending a message on the old host. If you only get one,
please let me know (but wait an hour to make sure the message doesn't get
delayed). Send complaints to SLUG-REQUEST@AI.SRI.COM or COMMON-LISP-REQUEST@AI.SRI.COM.]
We are going to be a subcontractor on a proposal with another company. The
prime contractor will be converting our Common-Lisp code to C. Their pricing
to the client will be based on the number of C lines they expect to "write".
Does anyone have any empirical data on lines of Lisp to lines of C (yes, I
know it is *extremely* variable -- eg, whether we need a GC)? Also, does
anyone have any data on the relative cost of those lines compared to lines
of C written from scratch?
