Hi!

Hi, I'm trying to start to learn Lisp.

Can anyone tell me a good Lisp COMPILER (not interpreter or bytecode compiler) ?

I found LispBox, which doesn't compile on my system.
Then I found GLC, the GNU lisp compiler, but I cannot find any documentation on how to actually use it, eg. info on how to compile a simple Lisp "Hello World" sourcecode file...

and i found CMUCL, but there I have the same problem with the documentation...

AFAIK, SBCL is the current favorite.

What about CLisp? Anything particularly wrong with that?

he wanted a native compiler (CLISP is lisp --> bytecode)
