Title: Memory management, virtual machine architecture and evaluation in newLISP



AbstractnewLISP's automatic memory management, a unique virtual machine (VM) design and Lisp evaluation model result in a compact and fast Lisp interpreter with attributes not found in other VM based languages, like predictable execution times and memory usage and a consistent and easy to understand LISP evaluation model. Architectural details of newLISP are explained and differences from a users perspective are discussed to see how newLISP differs from Common Lisp and Scheme.
