The CLiCC README file:

  CLiCC is a Common Lisp to C Compiler. It generates C-executables
  from Common Lisp application programs. CLiCC is not a Common Lisp
  system. Hence it does not include any program development or
  debugging support. CLiCC is intended to be used as an addon to
  existing Common Lisp systems for generating portable applications.

  CLiCC supports a subset of Common Lisp + CLOS, which we call CL_0
  (CommonLisp_0). CL_0 is a strict and very large subset of full
  Common Lisp + CLOS, without (EVAL ...) and friends. At present,
  CL_0 is based on CLtL1, but we are working towards CLtL2 and

  The target language is a subset of C. CLiCC is adaptable to gene-
  rate ANSI-C or K&R-C by using a compiler option. The generated C
  code is compilable using a conventional C compiler on the target
  machine, and must be linked with the CLiCC runtime library in
  order to generate executables.


                      CLiCC is available via anonymous ftp from

                      ftp.informatik.uni-kiel.de (
                      file: kiel/apply/clicc-0.6.1.tar.Z


  See at the file COPYRIGHT for copyright and warranty conditions.
  The file INSTALL describes the installation of CLiCC and the file
  src/compiler/README describes the usage of the compiler.

  Look into the directory doc for papers about CL_0, the generated
  C code, the used intermediate representation of programs, and the
  migration of Common Lisp programs to CL_0.

  If you have any problems using CLiCC, please contact us. You will
  find our e-mail and mail addresses below. Any suggestions or
  ideas to improve CLiCC are welcome. We are very interested in
  hearing about you, even if you just used CLiCC successfully.
