in thread A Macro System for Perl?

Yes it's CLISP and the "slow" project I was referring to was indeed the Y! Store project. Which is being ported to Perl or C. Thanks for the enlightenment.

    You're kidding--Yahoo! Store's getting ported to perl or C? Man, I hope it's perl... It'd be real fun to chat with Paul after that happens. :)
      That's what I've heard. It hasn't happened yet. I hope it's Perl too and I think it will be. I think one of the reasons outside of performance is that there are many more fluent Perl and C programmers out there.

    Indeed, I thought that was probably what you were talking about. It's somewhat a mystery (at least to Lisp programmers) why they wouldn't just port it to a faster Lisp (any major commercial Lisp, for example - doing such ports should be relatively trivial), but that may have to do with the perception of Lisp programmers being hard to find. You'd think a company would rather undergo that than the massive technical problems involved in reinventing a lot of Lisp (especially stuff like Graham's which (I would assume based on his books) uses a lot of very Lispy constructs), in another language, but it's their choice, I suppose
