The Nanolisp machine.

Four files are proposed to install Nanolisp on your machine. The Lisp file contains the source code of the Nanolisp machine with respect to an ordinary Common Lisp interpreter. If an ordinary Common Lisp session runs, loading this file starts the Nanolisp machine.

Three guides are provided, a tutorial handbook, a reference guide and a specific text about the mathematical definition of the notion of lexical closure. A lexical closure associated to a Nanolisp lambda object is the visible part in the local environment at creation time ; all the details about this subtle notion are explained.
