Demonstration of Interactive Lisp

This is a demo that runs Gnu Common Lisp (GCL) interactively.

When the demo is started, a window and a command menu are created. Click in the input area and type an expression, such as (+ 2 3) .

You must have the Java virtual machine installed to run this demo; you can get it for Windows (msjavx86.exe) here.

The best things in life are free: this demo uses the free software Gnu Common Lisp (GCL), XGCL, X windows [see also XFree86], Java, and WeirdX, a Java implementation of an X server.


Instructions

  1. If needed, edit your display name. It should end in :2.0, for example, myterminal.cs.utexas.edu:2.0
  2. Click to start the demo. Scroll down to see the interaction window.

This server runs Gnu Common Lisp (GCL) interactively.

Click the mouse inside the box, then type in a Lisp expression, followed by Enter/Return. Repeat as desired.
