The correct title of this article is L# .NET. The substitution or omission of the # is because of technical restrictions.

L# .NET is a dynamic computer programming language intended to be compiled and executed on the Ecma-334 and Ecma-335 Common Language Infrastructure (CLI). It is a dialect of Lisp, adapted from Paul Graham's proposed Arc language to exploit the libraries of the .NET Framework, Microsoft's implementation of the CLI specification.

The language was designed by Rob Blackwell and Lloyd Dane, as was its first implementation. As of 2007, there are no competing implementations.

Rob Blackwell's implementation and documentation of L Sharp is copyleft free software.

As of December 2010, it has not been actively maintained since June 2009,[1] however there are plans for continuing this project in a more object-oriented environment.
