2.21 Lisp Library

The CMUCL project maintains a collection of useful or interesting programs written by users of our system. The library is in lib/contrib/. Two files there that users should read are:


This file contains a page for each entry in the library. It contains information such as the author, portability or dependency issues, how to load the entry, etc.


This file describes the library’s organization and all the possible pieces of information an entry’s catalog description could contain.

Hemlock has a command Library Entry that displays a list of the current library entries in an editor buffer. There are mode specific commands that display catalog descriptions and load entries. This is a simple and convenient way to browse the library.
