I feel compelled to point out that MCL isn't the only Lisp in which it's not hard to do real, slick applications.
We wrote a toy domain for DPMA using Microsoft Agent, for some Aibo Research guys from Sony. It uses ACL, using their COM interface to some Visual Basic code that wraps the MS Agent stuff to make it a little easier to use from Lisp.
Here's a screenshot of our Telematics simulator, which is not meant to be a finshed, polished application, just a testbed for using DPMA inside a car. It's a VB application that uses a DLL created with ACL that contains DPMA (phew!).
OK, I promise the run of self-congratulatory postings is officially over.Posted by jjwiseman at February 08, 2002 12:07 PM
