Open Source MCL 5.2 Released

some people call these humbugs

MCL 5.2 has been released as open source.

From Alice Hartley:

MCL 5.2 is now available at:

It is open source.

I am sorry that it does not run on Intel. I hope that some users will be able to find the resources for a port of MCL to Intel processors.

Please let me know of any questions or problems.


Wow, what a journey this particular Lisp has taken.

I loved learning Lisp, and I attribute it partly to MCL circa 1995, which was a great environment.

I'm with Geoff. I think I started programming in Lisp for a class around '93, and MCL was just awesome. I still miss the floating Inspector windows when I use ACL w/ Emacs/ELI.

Nice picture. I reminds me my trip to Alsaka.
