SBCL Problem using Eclipse/Cusp

Postby sssaml3 » Thu Apr 16, 2009 1:09 am

Hello everyone.

I'm experiencing an odd problem with the SBCL whenever I do pretty much anything in a Lisp Project in Eclipse. The SBCL disconnects quite frequently - after about 15 seconds (on average) of being connected, each time. I am running Fedora 10 on my PC.

The steps I usually go through whenever I want to work in Lisp are:

1. Start up Eclipse (sometimes takes quite a while due to the plugins for Lisp and the SBCL)

2. Change perspective to Lisp

3. File -> New -> Lisp Project. I type in the name of the project and click Finish. Assume I've created a project named Test. I am presented with four files:
* defpackage.lisp
* main.lisp
* test.asd
* tests.lisp

4. I check to see if the SBCL is connected in the REPL, and the first message is either:
Code: Select all
"You are running SBCL 1.0.9.13 via Cusp 0.9.375"


or

Code: Select all
Disconnected


5. Now, if the SBCL is disconnected I click on the little "Connect" icon (a picture of two plugs) and it starts up fine. However, if I sit and wait for about 15 seconds, it disconnects. This is true whether I have loaded a project or not.

I'm not sure what exactly is causing this problem ... any help in finding a solution is much appreciated. :-)

I think you will have a better response if you try contacting Cusp 's mailing list. I don't use Cusp, so I can't help you, this seems to be a problem with Cusp. You may also want to test if slime also gives the same problem, if you already didn't.

I fixed the problem I've been having: I simply downloaded an earlier version of Cusp here - http://www.bitfauna.com/projects/cusp/cusp_linux.tar.gz - and installed that with the SBCL, and the REPL no longer reports it being disconnected.

Lisp looks like a wonderfully powerful language. I cannot wait to master it! :-)

It is shocking to note that Cusp has no mailing list. SLIME works perfectly. Thank you for your help. :-)
