Gnu Common Lisp

GNU Common Lisp is an ANSI standardized dialect of the Lisp programming language. The creators designed it to work with the GNU Project, making it open-source and free for users. It provides features typical of Common Lisp implementations, such as a compiler, an interactive environment for debugging and running code, and a macro system that allows deep language customization. In addition to these standard features, GNU CLISP also includes an interpreter with bytecode compilation capabilities (using its own virtual machine), efficient memory management (including garbage collection), multiple thread support through its own threading library called "flexi-thread," sockets support through Berkeley sockets or libsvm, and access to C libraries via Foreign Function Interface (FFI).
