 **Lisp** is a programming language famous for its use in Artificial Intelligence and advanced Computer Science research. First developed in 1958, it is the second oldest (after Fortran) high-level programming language still in common use. **Lisp** is a programming language famous for its use in Artificial Intelligence and advanced Computer Science research.

-**InterLisp** was developed in 1967 at Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN) for TENEX, BBN's in-house PDP-10 operating system. Development was later transfered to XEROX PARC. The language became popular with Stanford University AI researchers and at other principly US West-Coast institutions. 
- 
-InterLisp was noted for its integration of interactive development tools into the the programming environment: debugger, Lisp-structure-aware editor, spelling corrector, file manager.

-The dialect was in a rivalry with Maclisp prior to the development of Common Lisp.

-----+It is also recommended that you create a Maclisp init file (''LISP.INI'') in your home directory with the following contents:
  
-EMACS LEDIT mode+  ;;; A very typical init file / Emacs mode--> -*- Mode:LISP; -*- 
 +  (COMMENT) ;magic 
 +  (PROGN ; real init file stuff 
 +    (SETQ BASE 10. IBASE 10. *NOPRINT NIL) ;base-10 display 
 +    (SETQ NOUUO T *RSET T) ;these make debugging easier 
 +    (SSTATUS FEATURE NOLDMSG) ;supress module load messages 
 +    '*) ;return an asterisk for Maclisp to print out

 +=== LEDIT ===
  
-//(Is LEDIT another Lisp dialect, or just TOPS-20 Emacs (non-/pre-GNU/Elisp) mode for editing Lisp source code?)//+''LEDIT'' is software package that allows a programmer to inspect, modify, and save Lisp source expressions from within a Maclisp session, abilities Maclisp itself lacks. This is achieved  by calling the Emacs editor from the programmer's Maclisp session.
  
-  --> //LEDIT is a module for connecting MACLISP & Emacs. You can inspecteditsave source in Emacs, then evaluate/run it in MACLISPIt's documented in INFOThere'supposed to be another module to do the same with InterLisp. I'd like to figure out how to use this. -- papa//+To use LEDIT: 
 + 
 +  Start Maclisp and load your source file. 
 +  Evaluate ''(LOAD "LISP:LEDIT.FASL")'' (You may add this line to your LISP.INI file and eliminate this step.) 
 +  - Evaluate ''(LEDIT)'' to switch to Emacs. 
 +  - Load the source file into Emacs (''^X ^F''). 
 +  - Viewchange, save source with Emacs commands. 
 +  - Flag function definitions to update in Maclisp with ''M-Z''. 
 +  - Return to Maclisp with ''^X Z''

 + 
 +If you have set-up your TWENEX session for Maclisp (see above), you must undefine the logical name ''LISP:'' before running InterLisp.
