Lisp Machine Flavors for LFE: implementing objects on Erlang/OTP

0 0

The MIT Lisp Machine had a system in it called Flavors for doing object orientation. It was a very interesting system with many novel features. In later releases it became the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS) which is a more traditional OO system. In this talk we will look at implementing Flavors for Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE) as a base for discussing the issues which can arise when doing OO system on top of Erlang/OTP. Some of the issues we will be looking at are handling classes and inheritance, and what an object is, or is not.
