Ok, I'm at my wit's end here. There has to be a free Common Lisp environment for Windows out there somewhere, right? But if there is, I sure can't find it.

If any of you can point me to one that works, I would be most grateful!



(Note: I said Windows. Cygwin is not, repeat not, Windows. :devil:)

List of free Common Lisps.

ECL appears to have a native Windows port, but you may have to compile it from source.

ABCL is Java-based, which may or may not be native enough for you.

Emacs-cl probably runs on Windows but definitely isn't what you're looking for.

The GNU ones are, naturally, Cygwin only. (Why GNU maintains two Common Lisp implementations is anyone's guess.) The others don't even claim to run on Windows.

I've not tried any of these; the only Windows Lisp I've used is DrScheme. (Powerful but horribly bloated and slow--and not Common Lisp.)

ECL was the key - thank you thank you thank you! :D
Í didn't even have to build it (even though it's supposedly buildable with MinGW, which is rather nice :)) - the binary Just Worked<sup>TM</sup>. It even integrated into SciTE with just one added line in lisp.properties!

It was just what I needed. Thanks again! :D
