Bad: A bad Lisp dialect written in C

I was going to wait a while before I posted this anywhere but I figured I'd release early and see where it goes.

This is my first real C application after years of indirectly avoiding it. What a life you all (C developers) live. Very fun once you get the hang of it but I've had to learn things that I didn't even know were challenges in computing and language design. It's eye opening!

I'm also new to Lisp which is why there's not really many features at the moment. At first I was going to just implement Arc but I think I'll save that for when I'm more skilled.

If anyone has any feedback on the code, implementation, anything, feel free to let me know! Above all else, I want to learn. I can take criticism. In fact that is why I am posting such a new project. :)
