Object-oriented Lisp interpreter and compiler

Lush is an object-oriented Lisp interpreter and compiler with a C interface, a vector, matrix, and tensor engine, a huge numerical library, a GUI toolkit, and bindings to GSL, SDL, OpenGL, V4l, and others. It is an alternative to Matlab, Python, and Scheme, and lets users mix Lisp and C within a single function for a unique combination of flexibility and efficiency. Lush is ideal for researchers in AI, computer vision, audio, image, and video processing, machine learning, statistics, bio-informatics, interactive graphics, and multimedia applications.
