Oaklisp
=======

Oaklisp is an object-oriented dialect of lisp sharing the standard
lisp syntax, including common lisp style macros, first class types,
multiple inheritance, and multiple namespaces (packages).  Oaklisp is
also a Lisp-1 dialect meaning functions and variables share the same
namespace (like Scheme).

This is a portable implementation of a lisp interpreter / compiler for
the Oaklisp dialect of lisp.

The compiler compiles Oaklisp source code into byte-code for the
included Oaklisp emulator / virtual machine.  The implementation
is described in the included documentation, and also in
