  • Scheme vs CL? Differences? Pros and Cons?

    For example IRCAM (French institute dedicated to the research of music and sound ) develops graphical/visual programming systems for music composition: OpenMusic is a long time project, which is Open Source, but runs only on top of LispWorks, because of its GUI capabilities. A project derived from OpenMusic is OM#, which also written on top of LispWorks. ScoreCloud is a commercial product written with LispWorks. Also OpusModus (a commercial music composition system written in Clozure CL) is currently being ported to LispWorks (mentioned by the developers): then it will be possible to run on new Macs and also on Windows.
