HPPA HPUX - 64 bit

The 64 bit HPPA port is designed to work with the 64 bit HPPA 2.0 or later processors and is built for HPUX 11i v1.

A variant of this port also runs on the 64 bit IA64 HPUX 11 platform using HPPA emulation - contact us for more information.

The HPPA port uses a precise garbage collector in contrast to the conservative garbage collector used on the x86 port and this reduces the chance of garbage being kept alive.

Up to 256G bytes of memory may be allocated for the lisp heap.

The license keys for the HPPA HPUX port are locked to the machine hostname and the machine hostid which HPUX refers to as the machine identification number.
