Note that the hardcopy documentation is out of date.
1 To get CMU Common Lisp, run:
2 /usr/cs/etc/modmisc - cs.misc.cmucl
3
4 This establishes /usr/misc/.cmucl as a symbolic link to the release area.
5 In your .login, add CMU CL to your path:
6 setpath -i /usr/misc/.cmucl
7
8 Then run "lisp". Note that the first time you run Lisp, it will take AFS
9 several minutes to copy the image into its local cache. Subsequent starts
10 will be much faster.
11
12 Or, you can run directly out of the AFS release area (which may be necessary on
13 SunOS machines). Put this in your .login shell script:
14 setenv CMUCLLIB "/afs/cs/misc/cmucl/@sys/beta/lib"
15 setpath -i /afs/cs/misc/cmucl/@sys/beta
16
17 After setting your path, "man cmucl" will give an introduction to CMU CL and
18 "man lisp" will describe command line options. For SunOS installation notes,
19 see the README file in the SunOS release area.
20
21 See /usr/misc/.cmucl/doc for release notes and documentation. Rather old
22 hardcopy documentation is available as tech reports in the document room.
23
24 Send bug reports and questions to cmucl-bugs@cs.cmu.edu. If you send a bug
25 report to gripe, they will just forward it to this mailing list.
26
27 Running CMU CL:
28
29 Run "lisp". Try also "lisp -edit", which starts Hemlock. Hemlock will use X
30 if the DISPLAY environment variable is defined, otherwise it will use terminal
31 i/o based on TERM and /etc/termcap.
32
33 Source availability:
34
35 Lisp and documentation sources are publicly readable in /afs/cs/project/clisp.
36 All CMU written code is public domain, but CMU CL also makes use of several
37 imported packages: PCL, CLX and XP. Although these packages are copyrighted,
38 they may be freely distributed without any licensing agreement or fee.
