8.18 Scratch Buffer

The SLIME scratch buffer, in contrib package slime-scratch, imitates Emacs' usual *scratch* buffer. If slime-scratch-file is set, it is used to back the scratch buffer, making it persistent. The buffer is like any other Lisp buffer, except for the command bound to C-j.

M-x slime-eval-print-last-expression
Evaluate the expression sexp before point and insert print value into the current buffer.
M-x slime-scratch
Create a *slime-scratch* buffer. In this buffer you can enter Lisp expressions and evaluate them with C-j, like in Emacs's *scratch* buffer.
