<language> A Lisp interpreter by Bill Birch of Bull, UK, with shallow-binding and dynamic scope.

Use of reference counting makes it suitable for experimenting with real-time and graphical user interfaces.

Common Lisp compatibility macros are provided, and most of the examples in "Lisp" by Winston & Horn have been run on RefLisp.

RefLisp makes no distinction between symbol-values and function-values, so a symbol can be either but not both.

There are Lisp modules for lexical scope and for running indefinite extent {Scheme} programs.

Version 2.67 ("Last Update for a While", the author is emigrating to Australia) includes an interpreter, documentation, examples and a profiler.

It runs under MS-DOS (CGA/EGA/VGA) and AIX.
