Subject: Re: Which one, Lisp or Scheme? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/01/31 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Matthew R. Wette | On a SPARCStation an Allegro CL uses *11 meg* to print "hello, world". | SCM uses *1 meg* to print "hello, world". this is very odd. ACL 4.3 on my SPARCstation has a swap footprint close to 5M. CMUCL has a swap footprint of about 1M. scsh uses 9M, and MIT Scheme eats 12M. | CL requires more $$ for ram and disk. some Scheme _implementations_ require far more RAM and disk than some Common Lisp _implementations_, and vice versa, I'm sure. #\Erik -- 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine -- a basic ingredient in quality software.
