Implementations of Common Lisp written in other programming languages
While Common Lisp implementations are usually written in Common Lisp, some implementations are written at least partially, if not mostly, in a different programming language. Those implementations can be (or could be if they were conforming enough) used to bootstrap other Common Lisp implementations.
- emacs lisp: emacs-cl is an implementation of Common Lisp written in emacs lisp (23). It would require some love to be updated to emacs 24 and lexical bindings, and complete the CL subset.
- Scheme: there's an old bit-rotten implementation of Common Lisp, Butterfly Common Lisp, written in Butterfly Scheme. But no know contemporaneous CL implementation written in scheme.
- C: CLISP is written mostly in C (with heavy usage of the C preprocessor and of a custom preprocessor), even if some parts are written in Common Lisp, notably the compiler.
- Java: More than 50% of the sources of ABCL are written in Java (the rest in Common Lisp) (298 java files, 256 lisp files; 13070 java lines, 10195 lisp lines).
- Smalltalk: no known CL implementation written in smalltalk (there are toy lisps implemented in smalltalk).
- Python: no known CL implementation written in python (there are toy lisps implemented in python).
- Ruby: no known CL implementation written in python (there are toy lisps implemented in Ruby).
- Perl: no known CL implementation written in perl (there are toy lisps implemented in Perl).
- Bash: no known CL implementation written in bash.
