Viaweb was the first web application?

- Actually, while it is true that you can compile CLISP under Cygwin, if you look at the download files at sourceforge for pre-installed releases the ones for windows are mingw based, which means they are native windows executables and don't require Cygwin or the Cygwin library. The configure script in the clisp sources will work on a msys/mingw or cygwin based system. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:38, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

To prevent users being thrown off track in the first paragraph, this can be better clarified with, for example, ``CLISP is a programming language _runtime_ 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:49, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
