chaos-lisp implements a multi-threaded ChaosNET Network Control Program under OpenMCL running on Mac OS X, interfacing with Unix-domain sockets containing emulated ChaosNET packets.

ChaosNET was a LAN technology contemporary with the MIT Lisp Machines. Today, it is of interest mostly to those emulating the Incompatible Time-Sharing System (ITS) and CADR Lisp Machines.

This code works well enough to allow the USIM emulator to communicate with a simulated host named "openmcl", including flow-controlled bi-directional streams, and the beginnings of mail and chat protocol support.

chaos-lisp depends on cocoa-mail.
