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
cambridge.apple.com (184.108.40.206), 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,
<this is a sample session showing what's on the server>

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:
