sampling Lisps, selecting an OS
The group I work with has alot of time and money invested in several "near"
realtime application written in muLisp for 16 bit DOS. Yes we are going to
have to do something in the near future. We had a group of our key people

I have been involved with this news group to find the state of lisp today
and what possiblities we might have to keep our investment in our current

I am sure you understand we would like to keep as much of our lisp
investment as possible. One close possibilty was eclispe and C..anybody use
eclisp in unix (or esp QNX) or do they support unix, dang forgot. I'll go

still have some consulting money left in the '98 budget.
