This paper describes the design issue, implementation and performance of a Lisp called TAO for the Lisp machine ELIS. TAO is a dialect of Lisp which unifies an object-oriented programming paradigm and a logic programming paradigm with a procedural programming paradigm. Since the interpreter is implemented fully by microcode, interpreted code runs faster than most of other dedicated machines.
