VLISP (1972-1981)From the year 1971, several LISP interpreters and compilers have been implemented at the University of Paris 8 - Vincennes. A new LISP dialect, called VLISP (for Vincennes LISP), has been developped and formalized.
VLISP interpreters and compilers were specially designed to run on small machines and were extremely fast.
