A dialect of Lisp developed at MIT AI Lab in 1966, known
for its efficiency and programming facilities. Later used by
Project MAC, Mathlab and Macsyma. Ran on the PDP-10.
Introduced the LEXPR (a function with variable arity),
macros, arrays, and CATCH/THROW. Was once one of two
main branches of LISP (the other being Interlisp). In 1981
Common LISP was begun in an effort to combine the best
features of both.
