<h1>Common Lisp Implementations</h1>
<h2 style="margin-bottom: 20px;">Open source</h2>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-6">
<h3>SBCL</h3>
<p>
<a href="http://www.sbcl.org">Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL)</a> is a high performance Common Lisp compiler. It is open source / free software, with a permissive license. In addition to the compiler and runtime system for ANSI Common Lisp, it provides an interactive environment including a debugger, a statistical profiler, a code coverage tool, and many other extensions. SBCL runs on a number of POSIX platforms, and experimentally on Windows.
</p>
</div>
<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-6">
<h3>Clozure CL</h3>
<p><a href="https://ccl.clozure.com/">Clozure CL</a> (often called CCL for short) is a free Common Lisp implementation with a long history. Some distinguishing features of the implementation include fast compilation speed, native threads, a precise, generational, compacting garbage collector, and a convenient foreign-function interface.</p>
<p>
Clozure CL is distributed under the terms of the Apache License, version 2.0.

<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-6">
<h3>Embeddable CL</h3>
<p><a href="https://common-lisp.net/project/ecl/main.html">ECL (Embeddable Common-Lisp)</a> is an interpreter of the Common-Lisp language as described in the X3J13 Ansi specification, featuring CLOS (Common-Lisp Object System), conditions, loops, etc, plus a translator to C, which can produce standalone executables.</p>
<p>ECL supports the operating systems Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS X, Solaris and Windows, running on top of the Intel, Sparc, Alpha, PowerPC and ARM processors.</p>
</div>
<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-6">
<h3>ABCL</h3>
<p><a href="https://common-lisp.net/project/armedbear/">Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL)</a> is a full implementation of the Common Lisp language featuring both an interpreter and a compiler, running in the JVM. Originally started to be a scripting language for the J editor, it now supports JSR-223 (Java scripting API): it can be a scripting engine in any Java application. Additionally, it can be used to implement (parts of) the application using Java to Lisp integration APIs.</p>
</div>
<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-6">
<h3>Clasp</h3>
<p><a href="https://github.com/clasp-developers/clasp">Clasp</a> is a new Common Lisp implementation that seamlessly interoperates with C++ libraries and programs using LLVM for compilation to native code. This allows Clasp to take advantage of a vast array of preexisting libraries and programs, such as out of the scientific computing ecosystem. Embedding them in a Common Lisp environment allows you to make use of rapid prototyping, incremental development, and other capabilities that make it a powerful language.</p>

<h3>Allegro CL</h3>
<p>
<a href="https://franz.com/products/allegro-common-lisp/">Allegro CL ®</a> is a powerful dynamic object-oriented development, especially suited to enterprise-wide, complex application development. Complex applications with billions of objects are made easy with Allegro CL. The complexity of today's software applications and the explosion of data size are pervasive in all fields ranging from Life Sciences to Manufacturing to Financial Analytics. Allegro CL is the most effective system for developing and deploying applications to solve these complex problems in the real world.
