Bug#531616: RFP: ccl -- Clozure Common Lisp (formerly OpenMCL)



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : ccl
  Version         : 1.3
  Upstream Author : Clozure Associates (Gary Byers)
* URL or Web page : http://openmcl.clozure.com/
* License         : LGPL with Lisp exception
  Description     : Clozure Common Lisp (formerly OpenMCL)

Ccl is a high-quality, native code implementation of Common Lisp,
derived from the non-GUI core of MCL.  It has the following advantages
over the high-quality native-code Lisps already included in Debian, such
as CMUCL and SBCL:

  - faster compiler;
  - comprehensible source code and easy bootstrap;
  - faster CLOS implementation;
  - smaller image.

Its limitations are as follows:

  - only works on PPC(64/32), AMD64 and x86 (SSE2 required);
  - slightly slower on non-CLOS code.

I've been using CCL exclusively for a year now, and I'm very happy with
it.  CCL includes ASDF, works fine with Slime, and should be trivial to
integrate within the Debian Common Lisp framework.
