I have an ad here from a company called Sapiens Software for
a product called Star Sapphire Lisp (SSL). SSL claims to be
a complete implementation of Common Lisp for PC compatibles,
for only $100. What makes me think this might be a port of
Kyoto Common Lisp is that the SSL compiler translates Lisp
into C. (Either a Lattice C or Microsoft C compiler is
required.) Other quotes from the ad:
"compiles programs into the C language"
"includes C source code for all Star Sapphire libraries"
"1 to 8 megabyte configurable workspace"
"virtual-memory, 64-bit architecture"
"complete graphics package"
"requires hard disk and 640K memory"
Does anyone have this software package or know more about it?
Is it, as I suspect, a port and augmentation of KCL?
