    • LISP Machine Progress Report 

      Bawden, Alan; Greenblatt, Richard; Holloway, Jack; Knight, Thomas; Moon, David; e.a. (1977-08-01)
      This informal paper introduces the LISP Machine, describes the goals and current status of the project, and explicates some of the key ideas. It covers the LISP machine implementation, LISP as a system language, ...
    • Reification without Evaluation 

      Bawden, Alan (1988-06-01)
      Constructing self-referential systems, such as Brian Smith's 3-Lisp language, is actually more straightforward than you think. Anyone can build an infinite tower of processors (where each processor implements the ...
    • Syntactic Closures 

      Bawden, Alan; Rees, Jonathan (1988-06-01)
      In this paper we describe {\\it syntactic closures}. Syntactic closures address the scoping problems that arise when writing macros. We discuss some issues raised by introducing syntactic closures into the macro ...
    • What a Parallel Programming Language Has to Let You Say 

      Bawden, Alan; Agre, Philip E. (1984-09-01)
      We have implemented in simulation a prototype language for the Connection Machine called CL1. CL1 is an extrapolation of serial machine programming language technology: in CL1 one programs the individual processors ...
