Could any one supply me with info on what order of | magnitude speed up I can expect (roughly) when I add in a byte-code | compiler? (I do want to keep it portable...) take a look at CLISP. it compiles to a reasonably fast byte code. ftp://ma2s2.mathematik.uni-karlsruhe.de/pub/lisp/clisp or see the FAQ. #<Erik 3020494548> -- there's a car that has more computing power than it took to get man to the moon: the BMW 750. but _you_ are stuck here on earth. haha.
