XLispStat is a statistical scientific package based on the XLISP language.
As from xlispstat startup:
XLISP-PLUS version 3.04 Portions Copyright (c) 1988, by David Betz. Modified by Thomas Almy and others. XLISP-STAT Release 3.52.20 (Beta). Copyright (c) 1989-1999, by Luke Tierney.
It includes a variety of statistical functions and methods, including routines for nonlinear curve fit. Many add-on packages have been developed to extend XLispStat, including contingency tables and regression analysis
XLispStat was historically influential in the field of statistical visualization.
Its author, Luke Tierney, wrote a 1990 book on it.
XLispStat dates to the late 1980s/early 1990s and probably saw its greatest popularity in the early-to-mid 1990s with greatly declining usage since. In the 1990s it was in very widespread use in statistical education, but has since been mostly replaced by R. There is a paper explaining why UCLA's Department of Statistics abandoned it in 1998, and their reasons for doing so likely hold true for many other of its former users.
