Orwell has been ported to the Macintosh by somebody at the University
of Glasgow. I was there recently, and asked about getting a copy.
They didn't seem to think there would be any problem, but unfortunately
the current version will not run on a Mac II, which made it not too
useful to me.
I would be very interested in any such languages for the Mac. Anyone
out there want to form an informal mailing list on this topic?
PS For the information of anyone interested in functional programming,
Glasgow University is awesome!
