    I just started a course in functional programming at uni and we'll be doing some theoretical work in one of the function languages.

    Which one is best supported on Leopard (Lisp, Common, Scheme, EmacLisp etc)? And where do I go to get myself up and running with it?

    Thanks very much,
    Sam.

    Brilliant! Thanks, all my googling for something that was posted after 2006 was fruitless. Downloading the common lisp from the first link now. Might take the longer version later.

    And sorry for the confusion, I was initially looking for a common lisp environment but decided to ask for the others just in case they were more common on mac. We can submit work in Scheme or Common.

    MIT / GNU Scheme is available for Mac OS X.

    Also as someone else has already mentioned Haskell, the Haskell platform for Mac OS X has everything you need in one convenient installer.
