not yet, sorry!  Here is where I am right now with Sal and all this  
new code: I am right in the middle of moving SAL to Grace/C++ and  
Scheme, I have the lexer already working in C++ and the language is  
more than half-way moved to scheme. Once that is done I will make  
some adjustments to Sal that reflect differences in the undelying  
envirnoments, for example the fact that Scheme has no object system  
and is realtime, and CL has an object system and is file based.  At  
that point ill address some features that are currently not in SAL,  
like the ability to apply anonymous functions and defining objects  
(for the CL version) . But since CM based code is essentially stable,  
the vast majority of my effort over the next months will be building  
up the scheme/real time environment.  I do plan on having a useful  
binary release of Grace for both Scheme and CL sometime in the  
beginning of the year -- are you teaching this next semester??
