 Architecture for Scheme execution

I am undertaking on a project to develop a specialist architecture for
executing Scheme. I'm currently at the research stage and am trying to
find out if anything of the sort has been done before etc.

If you know anything about this or have any ideas on the matter, please
e-mail me.

Cheers,

These are Scheme-specific:

The most famous work in this area was 'the LISP machine' which
was widely used at Stanford AI Lab (SAIL).  You should be able
to find a fair bit of documentation on this.  The manual for it
was generally called 'CHINE NUAL' because the title was wrapped-
around its back and front covers.

Nope.  If you don't read a group, don't post to it.

There is a picture of scheme silicon in SICP.  The reference is

  Batali et. al., "The Scheme-81 Architectgure -- System and Chip,"
  Proc MIT Conf Adv Res in VLSI, 1982.
