Chaitin's ToyLisp on a Connex Machine

Abstract: This paper describes an implementation of Chaitin's ToyLisp [Chaitin '87] on a Connex Memory Machine (CMM) [Stefan '85]. The Connex Memory Machine has a smaller complexity than previous Universal Machines used to run Lisp programs, so the time and space used in running Lisp programs can be considerably decreased. A ToyLisp like language can be used with a CMM to construct a Lisp (Co)Processor for accelerating Lisp processing in conventional architectures.
