Hi


Do you want to implement a Lisp-1 (like Scheme) or Lisp-2 (like Common
Lisp) ?


However, if you seriously want to write a lisp interpreter then you
should have a look into


"Lisp in small pieces" by Queinnec & Callaway


which is a special book about implementation of Lisp interpreters &
compilers).


Also the book from Jones & Lins about garbage collection that was
mentioned in another answer will help you at this topic.


Simple Lisp interpreter/compiler can be found i.e. in "Paradigms of
Artificial Intelligence Programming: Case Studies in Common LISP" by
Peter Norvig or "The ANSI Common Lisp Book" by Paul Graham.


Moreover there is the newsgroup comp.lang.lisp. There you will find
i.e. the maintainers of CLISP, CMUCL, SBCL and some comercial lisp
implementors. I assume that in comp.lang.scheme you can meet the
implementators of the various scheme interpreters.

Andreas
