Intellicorp, in its wisdom, has been DELIVERING KEE on an ALPHA release
of Sun Common Lisp 4.0 for SPARC platforms. This version (called 4.0a3)
has a compiler bug which prevents PCL from being compiled and does not
have an internal version of CLOS.
As a stopgap, as an interesting excercise, as a bridge for those migrating
from KEE's O-O stuff to CLOS, and for several other reasons, I have a very
reasonable subset of CLOS that is implemented as a syntactic front-end to
KEE's unit creation and method invocation stuff. In principle, one writes
code with CLOS and the classes, instances, and generic functions are constructed
from KEE units and methods. I have used the system for a reasonable project
with enough success that I intend this to be my standard KEE programming
interface from this point on. A description of the package has been presented
at the small, but always interesting, AI in DOE conference. Either the paper
or the system are available to anyone who wants them.
