Based on the progress I’ve made with FORTRAN, I decided to start another effort at the Computer History Museum to track down source code and documents for the original M.I.T. LISP I/1.5 project. I have made some progress, and am assembling a LISP web site at the Museum to organize and present the materials I’ve collected so far, including:
- LISP 1.5: Assembly listing for IBM 709/7090 standalone system, and also CTSS port. Information about various other ports and reimplementations including Univac M-460, Q-32, Univac 1108.
- PDP-1 Lisp: links to the documentation, source code and simulators
- MacLisp (PDP-6, PDP-10): links to documentatation and source code
- BBN-LISP: the manual for the original PDP-1 version and the Tenex version (coming soon: preliminary specifications for the 940 version)
- and many more.
As always, your comments are welcome. What am I missing? What facts have I gotten wrong? Please help fill in the gaps.
