                 Common Lisp. A simple experiment is conducted, and the
                 conclusion is that genetic programming implemented in
                 Common Lisp using on-the-fly compilation of the evolved
                 programs can be faster than an implementation in C,
                 also when the compilation time is taken into
                 consideration. The deciding factor is the number of
                 times that each evolved program is evaluated.
