VLISP refers to at least three distinct items.

These are, in no particular order:

  • A Lisp dialect implemented and formalized since 1971 at the University of Paris VIII - Vincennes, France. VLISP (for Vincennes LISP) interpreters and compilers were designed to run on small machines and were extremely fast. This VLISP led to Le-Lisp.
  • A formally verified implementation of the Scheme programming language (Scheme is a dialect of Lisp).
  • The "Visual Lisp" implementation included in recent versions of AutoCAD.
