I'm tempted to ask 'which Lisp', because there are so many,
but the answer is almost certainly no for whichever Lisp
you may mean (other than the Lisp that is Scheme).

If you are unfamiliar with building interpreters you might
like to go through PLAI or SICP, both of which are
available online.

If you understand interpreters then you probably want to
read about MzScheme module languages  (see 
) and look at the code in collects/lang

I agree more examples would be helpful.  In the meantime,
to get around this problem I suggest you download all the
relevant sources.  On Unix use wget or curl to download a
website.  On Windows, use a Linux CD to install Linux and
then see above. :)
