Server: A full-featured, production-quality Web server wholely written in Common Lisp is *freely* available from the following URL at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

Information: http://www.ai.mit.edu/projects/iiip/doc/cl-http/home-page.html

Q: Why might you care about this?

A: You might be interested in:

        * Minimizing the cycle time from conceptualization to market. 
        (Cooler than being last to market!)

        * Generating all HTML interfaces on the fly. 
        (Cooler than terabytes of legacy html!)

        * Synthesing JavaScript and Java  on the fly. 
        (Cooler than typing it in by hand!)

        * Developing complex or advanced Web applications. 
        (Cooler than serving static files!)

        * Creating intelligent, knowledge-based Web sites. 
        (Cooler than even a "Netscape enchanced" site!) 

Language: Common Lisp is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language 
that is used to develop and deploy leading-edge applications in university, government, 
and business settings.  This highly flexible and evolvable language has been typically used to develop 
large and complex artificial intelligence or natural languagge understanding systems.  These kinds
of power programming tools are becoming increasingly relevant  for  Web developers as ever more is required in ever less time.

Platforms: The server presently runs with full source-compatibility on the following platforms:

        * Macintosh (MCL - Comes on the CD)

        * UNIX (Allegro, LispWorks, Lucid) (Many flavors, including SunOS, Solaris, SGI, OSF)

        * Lisp Machines (Symbolics 8.3, Open Genera 1.0)

Additional ports are underway to the Windows environment and the free CLisp for UNIX
