Welcome to OpenMCL!

OpenMCL is an open source (LGPL) Common Lisp implementation that runs on PowerPC hardware under Mac OS X and LinuxPPC, and (as of version 1.1) on x86-64 hardware under Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD.

OpenMCL does not yet run on 32-bit Intel processors.

OpenMCL is in the process of being renamed to Clozure Common Lisp. You will see the two names being used interchangeably.

About this site

The contents of this site are managed by  Trac, which describes itself as "a minimalistic approach to web-based management of software projects, whose goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress." Towards this end, Trac provides a bug tracking system, an interface to OpenMCL's subversion repository, and a unifying Wiki framework.

As it's configured, this Trac instance allows anyone to view Wiki pages, to search for and view "tickets" (bug reports and feature requests), and to browse the OpenMCL source repository.  Registered users can add and modify Wiki pages and tickets. (Requiring that users register before modifying content here is intended to discourage spam.)

All Wiki pages are editable. This means that you can (after logging in) modify the contents of any Wiki page simply by using your web browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of available Wiki formatting commands.

TracGuide provides general documentation on the use of Trac's features.
