Specifications for a LISP 2 system are proposed. The source language is basically Algol 60 extended to include list processing, input/output and language extension facilities. The system would be implemented with a source language translator and optimizer, the output of which could be processed by either an interpreter or a compiler. The implementation is specified for a single address
computer with particular reference to an IBM 7090 where necessary .
Expected efficiency of the system for list processing is significantly greater than the LISP 1.5 compiler. For execution of numeric algorithms the systems should be be comparable to many
current "algebraic" compilers. Some familiarity with LISP, 1.5 Algol and the IBM 7090 is assumed.
