|   I'm doing a small report comparing the object oriented features of C++ 
|   and CLOS.  I come from a C++ background and have spent some time getting 
|   up to speed on CLOS.  I'm impressed by its extensibility and flexability.

you may find the book Object-Oriented Programming, the CLOS perspective,
edited by Andreas Paepcke, MIT press, 1993, ISBN 0-262-16136-2 a useful
addition to your research.  it has a paper on comparing CLOS and C++ by
Linda G. DeMichiel.  it may be somewhat dated, considering that C++ has
been suffering a bad case of cancerous growth in ISO.
