Apple maintains ftp servers at:
 ftp.apple.com       []    ; General Apple ftp site
 cambridge.apple.com []   ; Macintosh Common Lisp

Other ftp sites filled with Macintosh software include
 sumex-aim.stanford.edu []
 rascal.ics.utexas.edu  []
 mac.archive.umich.edu  []

Several implementations of Scheme are included with the MCL 2.0
cd-rom, including the freeware SIOD (uses just 50Kbytes)
the shareware Gambit, and a demo of the commercial MacScheme.
Read the file lisp-faq.hqx available by ftp from
for descriptions and ftp instructions on getting these and
other fine lisp-related languages.

For non-lisp (but Macintosh-related questions), send mail
to info-mac@sumex-aim.stanford.edu. You can subscribe to the
info-mac digest with a message to info-mac-request@sumex-aim.stanford.edu

Consult your system administrator on how to use netnews
to read newsgroups such as comp.sys.mac or comp.lang.forth.
