The Implementation and Optimization of Portable Standard LISP for the CRAY.

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:0297-zib-31
  • Portable Standard LISP (PSL), a dialect of LISP developed at the University of Utah, has been implemented and optimized for the CRAY 1 and CRAY X-MP supercomputers. This version uses a new implementation technique that permits a step-by-step development of the PSL kernel. The initial CRAY version was acceptable, although the execution speed of the PSL was not as fast as had been anticipated. CRAY-specific optimizations were undertaken that in some cases provided a ten-fold speed improvement, resulting in a fast LISP implementation.
