Lily (LIsp LibrarY) - Gives C++ programmers the capability to write LISP-style code

I think Lily will be useful in academia for instructors who want to teach artificial intelligence techniques with C++. The garbage collection mechanism employed by Lily is slow which will make it unattractive for commercial use.

Documentation is minimal. The "Lily User's Guide" (in file lily.txt) provides a good overview of the architecture of Lily -- the document is unfinished. All of the example programs are from Winston's book "LISP Second Edition" so you will be much better off if you have a copy. Steele's "Common LISP" describes the behavior of the LISP functions.
