Actually, my brain is a seive and if it weren't for this archive
I would probably not remember my own name! In fact I did ask Nic
if it was ok to put a copy of his thesis online. See:
This reminds me that someday real-soon-now I still hope to spend
some time looking at OBJ:

and how it might related to Axiom. More specifically, I was thinking
of installing some version of OBJ on the axiom server and making it
accessible via the wiki. This might be one (more) way of starting to
mix automated theorem proving with computer algebra. Do you think
anyone else would be interested in this?

Apparently there is/was? a version of OBJ3 that uses/used? GCL:

"There is a new release (from June 2000) of OBJ3, version 2.06; it is
a cleaned-up version OBJ3 version 2.04 (from 1992), engineered by Joseph
Kiniry and Sula Ma, and built and supported by Joseph Kiniry; it runs
under GCL 2.2.2, and has modern open source documentation."

but I have not been able to locate the source code yet since the links
seem to be out of date.

Perhaps I should consider using cafeOBJ?

which appears to be newer and apparently also can be compiled using

Or for the adventuresome, there is BOBJ - a Java-based version of
OBJ. I think BOBJ is very interesting because

"BOBJ is used in the Tatami project, which is developing the Kumo
proof assistant and proof website generator."
