This is an Oaklisp source distribution.

Oaklisp is a portable lisp interpreter / compiler for the Oaklisp
dialect of lisp.

Oaklisp is an object-oriented dialect of lisp sharing the standard
lisp syntax, including common lisp style macros, first class types,
multiple inheritance, and multiple namespaces (packages).  Oaklisp is
also a Lisp-1 dialect meaning functions and variables share the same
namespace (like Scheme).

The compiler compiles Oaklisp source code into byte-code for the
included Oaklisp emulator / virtual machine.  The implmentation
is described in the included documentation, and also in
