I once tried to port some code that ran fine under DEC Common Lisp
to LMI's Common Lisp and had *lots* of trouble -- in fact, I finally
had to give up. Now the system I was porting (Drew McDermott's
deductive retrieval system, DUCK) did some interesting things and
was probably pushing some things beyond their normal limits.
I have ported DUCK several times (actually, several times too many . . .),
and it could hardly be considered a candidate for most portable program
of the year.
Has anyone else tried porting common lisp code from one
implementation to another? If so, how did it go?
I have also ported several other medium-sized CL programs, between
Symbolics, TI, Gold Hill, NIL, and others, and have been fairly happy
with how it went.
