Re: SBCL Crowdfunding at IndieGoGo

Now taking a final run at the final goalpost! If $16k funding is reached, it's time to kiss the big compiler lock goodbye.

Introducing MADEIRA (Re: SBCL Crowdfunding at IndieGoGo)

So, the campaign has been a roaring success -- all initial goalposts have been hit in 3 days out of 19. This means it was time for a new goal. If the campaign reaches $12k, in addition to the SBCL specific work I will also implement Madeira, a new portability layer for Common Lisp implementations , ...

For example, SBCL uses a compiler-macro to optimize MAKE-INSTANCE when the class argument and all the keywords (not keyword argument values) are constant. There are many, many k...
