Does it implement the language in the manual?
If it doesn't, what are the differences?
You didn't say anything about tail recursion, which confuses me. How do
the Common Lisp- and LISP/VM-embedded versions of CSI LISP manage to run
(DEFINE (COUNT N)
(COND ((= N 0) T)
(ELSE (SEE-WHETHER-IT-REALLY-WORKS (- N 1)))))
(DEFINE (SEE-WHETHER-IT-REALLY-WORKS N)
(COUNT 10000000) ?
Certainly your advertising can't claim that "CSI LISP is an
implementation of T" if CSI LISP can't run programs like the above.
