    For the hard-core --
    I've been following the abcl lisp mailing list, and the Maxima mathematics package will now run using it. This is from the http://maxima.sourceforge.net/ web site:
    -------------- Maxima is a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series, Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, and sets, lists, vectors, matrices, and tensors. Maxima yields high precision numeric results by using exact fractions, arbitrary precision integers, and arbitrarily precision floating point numbers. Maxima can plot functions and data in two and three dimensions --------------
    abcl is the underlying interpeter engine for the new [maxlispj] object:
    If you're interested in trying to use this, the j-devel (abcl) mailing list thread that has the discussion is here:
