PSL (Portable Standard LISP) is a new LISP implemented at the University of Utah as a successor to the various Standard LISP systems we previously distributed. PSL has about the power, speed and flavor of Franz LISP or MACLISP, with growing influence from Common LISP. It is recognized as an efficient and portable LISP implementation with many more capabilities than described in the 1979 Standard LISP report.
