    Capitalization

    Thank you for not using the ancient and unused spelling of Lisp in all-caps, it is an eyesore for any modern article discussing the topic. But why did you spell Clasp with all caps? I see nowhere on his site that he ever referred to it in such a manner.

      Seems like a llvm front-end, not a backend ?

        Yess! I love Common Lisp, probably my overall favorite language.

        I have been expecting a LLVM frontend for it to appear some day. I don't have the time to start working on one myself, but now that it exists, I will certainly consider contributing to the project. I would love for this to succeed and compete with more mature CL implementations like SBCL, CCL, or ECL.

          What is next a COBOL front end to LLVM ? 😜

          This actually sounds lie a great project. I never got into Lisp, all the brackets fry my brain, but I can see how this might excite some.

            I wonder if it even has TCO yet. Not really worth using if it doesn't
