Experience: Programming in C, various flavors of Lisp (including Lisp
with Flavors :), Simula, Pascal, Smalltalk, Fortran, PL/I,
perl (ugh)..., mostly Lisp/scheme & Fortran, but lots of
debugging of other people's C code. Symbolic and numeric
programming. Analysis of algorithms & algorithm
development. Reading & investigating lisp performance
issues, GC issues, foreign function interfaces, ... Very
familiar with Linux - sometimes read kernel code to
investigate problems. Some experience with parsing of
source code and source code translation. Have programmed
on Lisp machines & under DOS, Windows, Unix, Tops-10,
Tops-20, VMS, and some IBM machine or other.
Special areas of interest:
Keeping it fast enough to do numerical analysis.
Replacing unix tools with Lisp versions where useful,
especially if they replace something incredibly ugly and
bugridden (e.g. sendmail) with something simple and
robust. Anything which might make the distribution of
lisp/scheme source code as usable to as many people as C
source code is.
Areas prepared to work on: Anything - I haven't yet decided which part
I'm most interested in, but I'm unlikely to work on
anything which will only work under *1* lisp system -
i.e. - I'd rather write applications in generic common
lisp than help develop yet another lisp which is
incompatible with other lisps.
Level of commitment: As much as I can without my wife demanding a
divorce - maybe about 5-8 hrs/week, provided I can do it at
home & at work on my Linux boxes without bringing the
