2.4 Running SLIME

SLIME is started with the Emacs command M-x slime. This uses the inferior-lisp package to start a Lisp process, loads and starts the Lisp-side server (known as “Swank”), and establishes a socket connection between Emacs and Lisp. Finally a REPL buffer is created where you can enter Lisp expressions for evaluation.

At this point SLIME is up and running and you can start exploring.
