Subject: Re: Is there any lisp compiler generating exec files? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/05/13 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Jae-youn Chung | It would be very nice if it can be compiled to, at least, bytecode so | that it can run very quickly in the command line oriented environment so | that it can be used other generic unix commands like sed, awk and so on. | | Is there any compiler capable of these? since the Lisp system is likely to maintain useful state information and would need to load this every time, I think a better solution would be to set up the Lisp system to accept connections on a socket bound to a port only on the local machine (127.0.0.1), require the caller to send the contents of some file that only approved users can read for simple authentication purposes, and go into a simple read-eval-print loop. this would give you the benefit of fast loading (the client program can easily be written in C), and evaluation inside a large Lisp system tha can service a number of users and requests. #:Erik -- Support organized crime: use Microsoft products!
