For Immediate Release
Digitool Releases CLIM 2.0
Cambridge, MA, Feb 15, 1999
Digitool today released CLIM 2.0 for MCL, a MacOS implementation of
the Common Lisp Interface Manager, a cross-platform user interface
management system. CLIM provides a complete platform-independent
windowing system having declarative layout control, context sensitive
input, and interaction via mouse, menu, and keyboard.
Digitool’s CLIM is sold as an add-on to their flagship product MCL
4.2, a development environment for intelligent systems. When combined
with your Macintosh, MCL and CLIM form a superior framework for
developing intelligent multi-platform applications.
MCL is an optimizing native code compiler for Common Lisp, an
advanced computer programming language developed at the request of
DARPA, and standardized (ANSI X3.226) in 1994 by the American
National Standards Institute. CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System,
thus became the first-ever standardized computer language for object
The Common Lisp language benefits from forty years of continuous
evolution and refinement. It is ideally suited for rapid development
of complex systems, and for projects where just a few programmers
must produce intelligent systems of high sophistication and
reliability. MCL is a direct descendant of one of the first Common
Lisp implementations created in 1985.
Digitool provides CLIM and Common Lisp implementations exclusively
for Macintosh computers. CLIM and Common Lisp are available from
established vendors for many computer platforms.
CLIM and MCL are priced at $250 and $345, respectively, for
single-copy licenses. Lower prices are available for educational
institutions and full-time students, with prices as low as $85 for a
single copy of MCL with the student discount. Subscriptions, site
licenses, and source code are also available.
