Author: Masinter, Larry M.
Date: August 1981
Abstract: This report documents the results of a study to evaluate the feasibility of implementing the Interlisp language to run on the DEC VAX computer. Specific goals of the study were to: 1) assess the technical status of the on-going implementation project at USC-ISI; 2) estimate the expected performance of Interlisp on the VAX famility of machines as compared to Interlisp-10, other Lisp systems for the VAX, and other Interlisp implementations where performance data were available; and 3) identify serious obstacles and alternatives to the timely completion of an effective Interlisp-VAX system.
