Could there be a full Lisp dialect to play with?

I also have this next question besides the title’s: how could it be implemented in pure Lisp 1.5 or something similar. Because I am almost able to get the full PDP-8 virtual machine running and have the documentation for learning it but I just pondered if you had any suggestion tips or ideas for some help on this very topic.

For those who are unaware, I am trying to work on a 12-bit-byte version of Paradise and a constructed language’s translation as well.

Oh! That sounds like an amazing project.

The experimentation version of paradise do have a "full" lisp to play with, you can see the library functions here.

I'm not sure how I would go about implementing this in pure lisp, I'm actually re-implementing paradise in ANSI C at the moment, and I'm using a very simple s-expression parser to handle the procedural scripting stuff. I'd love to see a scheme or lisp version of paradise, if you create a repo, I'd love to follow along.

Good to know that your are working on that ANSI C and thanks for the reminder on full lisp implementation. My latest effort so far has been to simply customize the styling to my tastes here: . Probably gonna have to learn back once again some sweet Lisp but that is a good base for backporting it to LISP 1.5 .

All of my repositories are available at:

It’s a pleasure to continue my early open source journey alongside you two. ^.^
