Abstract

TAO is a dialect of Lisp implemented on a Lisp machine called ELIS. TAO has multiple programming paradigms logic programming and object-oriented programming. These paradigms: are fused at the core of the evaluation kernel of the interpreter and written in microcode. Hence, the user can mix them in arbitrary granularity without loss of efficiency. This paper discusses TAO/ELIS's outstanding features as well as the results of performance evaluation. TAO/ELIS is proved to be one of the fastest list processing systems ever made.
