Label on tape reads: "CommonLoops merges the facilities of object oriented programming and Lisp. This talk will briefly describe the relevant features of the two styles of programming, and describe the unique properties of this merge. These include a uniform syntax for function calling and sending messages; a merger of the type space of Lisp and the class hierarchy of objects; a generalization of method specification that includes ordinary Lisp functions at one extreme, and fully type specified functions at the other, and a "metaclass" mechanism that allows tradeoffs between early binding and ease of exploratory programming in the implementation of objects."
