Cambridge Lisp manual?

Postby LuigiThirty » Mon Sep 26, 2016 9:30 pm

I ran across the old Cambridge Lisp ST port and being a Lisp aficionado I'd love to play with it. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a manual for it online anywhere that I can find, just a disk full of example code. Anyone have the manual for this or know where to get it?

Hi LuigiThirty,

After a quick search with Google I find 2 links:

ST version :

A PDF manual document :

Hope it can help :) ,

Hmm, that's for the Acorn Cambridge computer. The language is the same but I'll have to dig through the example code on the disks to make it work with GEM, I guess.

Seems hard to find something :( . Agree with you to have a dig through the exemple code.
