There are several available for Linux. If you have it installed or not depends on your distro and what you've installed. Try typing clisp at the terminal (as Common Lisp is a popular implementation). If you don't have it... follow the directions for adding software for FC5 and just look for that name.

Umm, Common Lisp is the dialect, CLisp is the implementation. There is also SBCL, CMUCL, and ECL too. Check out the CLiki for lots of details.

You might also be interested in emacs lisp.

You can download the elisp manual here: ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/gnu/emacs/

Technically correct... I wasn't thinking clearly (I blame it on the meds). Still, he's most likely to have [gnu] clisp on his computer because it's GNU. The others are easy to get as well. But I don't know if any of them would be in the base install. Maybe clisp wouldn't be either... I guess it all depends.

Anyway, I meant that GNU CLisp was a popular implementation. If we're going to be specific we may as well go all the way.

Hello!
Here is my own simple lisp interpreter, called MLISP (Math LISP):
Code:
http://pages.plotinka.ru/~agre/mlisp.html
It's very simple and can introduce you to main lisp features (I hope).

Installation: $ make install
Documentation:$ man mlisp

Feel free to ask me through email (see mlisp -v).

Hope, this will be useful.
