A register-based virtual machine for a basic Lisp

This is a register-based virtual machine that runs a subset of Lisp. It supports the basic forms like `lambda`, `define`, `set!`, `if`, etc. Needs Outlet to run: https://github.com/jlongster/outlet Code is compiled to a special assembly language that the virtual machine assembles and runs. For example: (define a 3) is compiled to: ((assign val (const 3)) (perform (op define-variable!) (const a) (reg val) (reg env)) (assign val (const ok))) This is an experiment to see if this is capable of running Outlet (https://github.com/jlongster/outlet) code at acceptable speeds. If so, this has great potential as a debugger.
