  abstract =     "Automatic programming consists not only of an
                 automatic compiler, but also some means of acquiring
                 the high-level specification to be compiled, some means
                 of determining that it is the intended specification,
                 and some (interactive) means of translating this
                 high-level specification into a lower-level one which
                 can be automatically compiled.

                 We have been working on this extended automatic
                 programming problem for nearly 15 years, and this paper
                 presents our perspective and approach to this problem
                 and justifies it in terms of our successes and
                 failures. Much of our recent work centers on an
                 operational testbed incorporating usable aspects of
                 this technology. This testbed is being used as a
                 prototyping vehicle for our own research and will soon
                 be released to the research community as a framework
                 for development and evolution of Common Lisp systems.",
