more jrm goodies

Joe Marshall has been busy adding material to his new website. The latest bit: Gigamos notes. I'd never heard of Gigamos before, but I was surprised to learn that the successor (sort of) to LMI was involved in a Canadian bribery scandal!

He's also adding new files to his Google svn repo. I fetched it like this:

svn co http://jrm-code-project.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

Each daily svn update pulls in new, interesting stuff. For example, the repo now has fleabit:

Fleabit is the Common Lisp compiler for the K machine a Lisp optimized RISC machine developed at Lisp Machine Inc. and GigaMOS Systems. Fleabit is largely an adaptation of ORBIT the Scheme compiler developed at Yale in the T project. Like ORBIT it is based upon ideas developed by Steele in the Rabbit compiler for Scheme.
