I'm new to Common Lisp
, but setting up a good Lisp environment under my OS seems to me the major problem.
In fact, I've installed Slime + SBCL 1.0.13 on Emacs 22.
Now, I wanted to use some external libs, like vecto
. I've seen I have to use asdf-install, but how to install it on Windows ? [I've read this useful post
, but I did not understood the last point in the additional notes section ]
When I look at projects like PLT-Scheme
, there's a great multiplateform IDE, and no problems to install it: you just have to code.
Now, going to Common Lisp, you either have a choice between Emacs+Slime and you'll have to spent hours on to configure them for a newbie, and proprietary tools like Allegro or LispWorks (yes, with restricted free versions) why ?
Nothing to the above, but maybe that can help some of you. Here's a Firefox plugin (working with version 3) that brings a BBCode bar for forums like this one : BBCode bar
