The Common Lisp implementation at the heart of LispWorks has its origins in Lucid Common Lisp, which was written by Richard P. Gabriel's company, Lucid Inc. When Lucid folded in 1994 due to mismanagement, Lucid Common Lisp was sold to Harlequin.

LispWorks is not based on Lucid CL. Harlequin bought Lucid CL when it already had LispWorks for some time. Harlequin then ported some of its software over to Lucid CL. But LispWorks is the main Lisp product. Lucid CL was probably bought to get the customers. What was Lucid CL is still maintained as Liquid CL.


Correct. LCL was acquired in late 1994; the first LW release was 1989. Technical subnote: early builds of LW were bootstrapped using LCL. Nick Levine 20:26, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

This page as stands doesn't make sense, the name Harlequin is just dropped in the second paragraph. There is no context.

CAPI[edit]

CAPI links to a disambig. and it is not clear, which one of the articles to choose. BTW, I am curious, that there is nothing more to say about that CL impl. (the article is so small...) --VictorAnyakin (talk) 13:33, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't know what that means but as a source comment it was adding in unwanted whitespace so I'm moving it here. Jason Quinn (talk) 22:54, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 18:17, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 00:20, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
