In the past three years, the SPACAL Collaboration have developed the compensating lead/scintillating fiber calorimeter technique from its conceptual stage towards a mature technology allowing the construction of high-precision particle detectors. Last summer, a full-scale e.m./hadronic prototype calorimeter with a fiducial volume of 13 tons, containing 176855 scintillating plastic fibers, was tested at CERN. Results from these tests are described.
