I have written a small implementation of a condition system
based on KMP's proposal#5, though with quite a number of modifications.
The modifications fall into one of two categories:
+ Something in KMP's proposal was unworkable
+ I think there is a better way
The differences are summarized in the file notes.text
There is a small file of examples named examples.lisp
I understand that KMP is working on another proposal, though I am
unaware of the proposal's proposed contents.
This code is just for hack value -- I'm not suggesting any
of it is realistic or that one shouldn't do things in a
quite different way.
The code has only been used under symbolics 6.1 and lucid alpha 2.1.1
on a sun, so I have many doubts about its true portability.
You can find it in:
reagan.ai.mit.edu:>mly>clcond>dist5>*.* (reagan is 126.96.36.199)
and for unixoids:
prep.ai.mit.edu:/u/mly/clcond5/dist5.tar (prep is 188.8.131.52)
The tar file is 153600 bytes long, which gives a rough idea of
the overall scale of the code.
I don't think that it is really feasible to mail something
of this size to people who can't FTP. Sorry.
