Question: Where can I learn about implementing Lisp interpreters and compilers?

Answer: Books about Lisp implementation include:

1. John Allen
"Anatomy of Lisp"
McGraw-Hill, 1978. 446 pages. ISBN 0-07-001115-X
Discusses some of the fundamental issues involved in
the implemention of Lisp.

2. Samuel Kamin
"Programming Languages, An Interpreter-Based Approach"
Addison-Wesley, Reading, Mass., 1990. ISBN 0-201-06824-9
Includes sources to several interpreters for Lisp-like languages.
The source for the interpreters in the book is available
by anonymous FTP from
a.cs.uiuc.edu:/pub/kamin/kamin.distr/
Tim Budd reimplemented the interpreters in C++, and has made
them available by anonymous ftp from
cs.orst.edu:/pub/budd/kamin/

3. Sharam Hekmatpour
"Lisp: A Portable Implementation"
Prentice Hall, 1985. ISBN 0-13-537490-X.
Describes a portable implementation of a small dynamic
Lisp interpreter (including C source code).

4. Peter Henderson
"Functional Programming: Application and Implementation"
Prentice-Hall (Englewood Cliffs, NJ), 1980. 355 pages.

5. Peter M. Kogge
"The Architecture of Symbolic Computers"

"Essentials of Programming Languages"
MIT Press, 1992, 536 pages. ISBN 0-262-06145-7.
Teaches fundamental concepts of programming language
design by using small interpreters as examples. Covers
most of the features of Scheme. Includes a discussion
of parameter passing techniques, object oriented languages,
and techniques for transforming interpreters to allow
their implementation in terms of any low-level language.
Also discusses scanners, parsers, and the derivation of
a compiler and virtual machine from an interpreter.
Includes a few chapters on converting code into a
continuation passing style.
Source files available by anonymous ftp from
cs.indiana.edu:/pub/eopl/ [129.79.254.191].

The MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass., 1991.
Articles relevant to the implementation of functional
programming languages.

8. Also see the proceedings of the biannual ACM Lisp and Functional
Programming conferences, the implementation notes for CMU Common Lisp,
Norvig's book, and SICP (Abelson & Sussman).

9. Christian Queinnec
