Bigloo has been developed at Inria-Rocquencourt by the Icsla team from 1991 to 1994, at the University of Montreal in 1995 and at Digital’s Western Research laboratory in 1996, University of Geneva during 1997 and from the end of 1997 at the University of Nice.

I would like to express my gratitude to Hans J. Boehm for his Garbage Collector [BoehmWeiser88, Boehm91], Jean-Marie Geffroy for his pattern-matching compiler [QueinnecGeffroy92], Dominique Boucher for his Lalr grammar compiler, William Clinger for his syntax expansion implementation and Dorai Sitaram for his contribution with the pregexp package and its documentation. I also especially thank Christian Queinnec for all his useful remarks, help, suggestions and teaching.

Other people have helped me by providing useful remarks, bug fixes or code improvements. I thank all of them and especially Luc Moreau, John Gerard Malecki, David Halls and David Gurr.

I thank Barrie Stott for his help in making much of the documentation more idiomatic. Of course, any remaining errors are still mine.

This release of Bigloo may still contain bugs. If you notice any, please forgive me and send a mail message to the following address:
