Full description '''GCL''' is a Compiler and interpreter fo'''GCL''' is a Compiler and interpreter for Common Lisp. It compiles to C and then uses the native optimizing C compiler (e.g., [[GCC]]), giving great portability. It is highly efficient: a function call is basically the same speed as a C function call, in fact identical to a C function call via a pointer. The program has a source level Lisp debugger (dbl) for interpreted code, letting you step a line at a time, while displaying your position in an [[Emacs]] window. It has pioneered conservative Garbage Collection schemes, but also has the stratified garbage collection (SGC) scheme, for only recent allocations, that is based on native page fault handling. There is also a built in interface to Tk widget system. Allows a mixture of tcl and common lisp to be used in a user interface--your choice which you use.user interface--your choice which you use.
