You raise some issues which I have been thinking about for a little while.
A) On SRI-KL a current version of Tops-10 MacLISP NEWIO can be gotten from:
B) As far as ability for Tops-10 MacLISP to use full address space on
Tops-10 VM, there has been talk of trying to bring up such a version
in an attempt to get MACSYMA up on a Tops-10. If we manage to get this
to win, then hopefully it will also work on -20's under PA1050 (not clearly
C) Perhaps the best possibility is this one. As soon as the Tops-20 that now
exists at our site is fully operational, the LISP group (probably mainly
myself) will be finishing up and testing the Tops-20 implimentation of
MacLISP (there is much code written by Guy Steele to support the -20,
but none has been tested). I hope to have a fairly operational native -20
version up by the end of the summer (schedule may change depending upon
the availability of our 2050). SRI-KL will be perhaps the first non-local
site to be running this software when it arrives.
I am responsible for the Tops-10 version of NEWIO (the one that is running at
SRI-KL). I would be happy to talk to you furthur on any of these issues.
I am HIC@MIT-MC. If you do decide to try the MacLISP on SRI-KL, please inform
me of bugs and I will fix them as soon as possible. The local person to
contact is probably Mike McMahon (MMCM@SRI-KL) who has helped me in a number
of ways and seems to be the most knowledgable person about MacLISP at SRI.
I have CC'ed a copy of this message to him.
