Okay, so I just got the big tar file and tried loading it.
It just about all loaded, until the last file:
; Loading /afs/cs/project/cmt-1/sun4/express-w/ew/code/lisp-window.lisp.
Error: Invalid initialization argument :NAME for class PROGRAM-FRAMEWORK
This looks like some PCL problem, possibly version diffs between that and the
in-core version on "Allegro CL 3.1.beta.22 [Sun4] (6/8/89)".
It's not a PCL problem per se, just that Allegro CL comes with Victoria
Day PCL which requires you to specify the :initarg for each slot in a
class. The EW code is set up to use AAAI PCL (an earlier version) which
didn't have that requirement.
We went through and added that option (:initarg) to every slot of every
defclass in EW (probably overkill, but we didn't want to take the time
to investigate which ones were initialized and which ones weren't).
