The output of IronLisp is now looking similar to IronPython’s. That said, IronLisp runs the benchmark at roughly the same time as IronPython now.
On the bright side, I seem to have gotten macro’s waxed. On the other hand, the code is in a total state of chaos! Anyways, macro’s are now all handled at compile time (probably very inefficiently), but they seem to do what I intend for them to do. Here is a sample of what it can handle:
(= defmacro (macro (name args &rest body) `(= ,name (macro ,args ,@body)))) (defmacro defun (name args &rest body) `(= ,name (fn ,args ,@body))) (defun hello (x) (prl x) (prl "hello") (prl x)) (hello "leppie") (defmacro define (name value) `(= ,name ,value)) (defmacro listp (l) `(or (eq null ,l) (is cons ,l))) (defun islist (x) (listp x)) (prl (islist 1)) (define ml '(1 2 3 4)) (prl (listp ml))
