Hempl edit

Hempl is recursive for Hempl's embedded mini PicoLisp.

It is a software system for natively programming microcontrollers (interactively and incrementally) using PicoLisp.

Hempl can read S-expressions from a micro SD card or from the console (over UART, USB or Telnet).

Hempl is influenced by and is a fork of the eLua project.

This manual currently focuses on running Hempl on the Mizar32.

Mizar32 edit

The Mizar32 main board
The Mizar32 Lisp machine running PicoLisp as its language

Congratulations! You have in your hands the manual for the Mizar32, a 32-bit computer based on the AVR32 processor at 66MHz with 32MB of main memory, mass storage on SD card, a USB connector, a light, two buttons, a JTAG port and six bus connectors. The bus connectors let you add other stackable hardware modules such as serial ports, ethernet, a 16x2 character LCD display and a VGA/keyboard/mouse/audio board based on the 8-core Propeller processor and your own custom boards.

  • Mizar32 is a book that focuses on the hardware; this "Hempl" book focuses more on developing software in the Hempl variant of Lisp.
  • Alcor6L is a multi-language IDE for natively programming microcontrollers (interactively and incrementally), supporting (among other languages and hardware) PicoLisp on Mizar32. Alcor6L is a fork of the eLua project.
