About the clim library (aperiodic posting)

<this is a short user guide>

  General information about the clim-library:
  The clim-library is a repository for user contributed code for the clim
  environment.  CLIM is "Common Lisp Interface Manager", the standard
  being developed and supported by most lisp providers (Symbolics, Lucid,
  Franz, Harlequin, Apple,...).
  Access is available to anyone by anonymous ftp.  Ask your system manager
  if you don't know how to ftp from your machine.  Do a ftp to (, enter "anonymous" as user-id, then
  <your-name>@<your-host.domain> as the password.
  Use the ftp "cd pub/clim" command to change to the correct directory and
  try "dir" to see the directory. (use "help" to see other ftp commands)
  To get files use the ftp "get" command, to put your files on the server,
  use "put".

  After various discussions with Scott McKay and Christopher Fry, I have
  volunteered to be a librarian for CLIM utilities.
  Steve Strassmann has agreed to dedicate some disk space for clim code.
  If you have clim code that you would like to share, you can load it onto
  This directory is intended to contain clim utilities (browsers,...),
  clim example code and clim patches.
  Since clim runs on unix, symbolics and mac machines, it is best not to
  use compression formats when possible.
  As a convention, I suggest that large portions of code be accompanied by
  a read-me file:
  Short contributions can include readme information in the header of the
  Please mail for any suggestions or comments.
  Have fun!
