I grabbed a copy of the Goodwill version of EW
yesterday and I'm having a problem compiling it. When
(compile-ew) gets done compiling code/io-functions and
loads it, my lisp hangs waiting for input. This is caused
by the (setup-lisp-functions) call. Has anyone else run
across this? Any fixes? I'm running Allegro Common Lisp
3.1.13 on a Sun3.
I've think I've run into this before. I had similar symptons
with EW not being configured correctly for the version of PCL
being used. Which version of PCL are you using? The
Victoria Day one provided with Allegro? or maybe Rainy or
May Day PCL?
Also, what's the value of *features*?
I'm using the Victoria Day pcl that comes with Allegro. My
*features* list looks like this after loading code/require:
(:X :DEFPACKAGE :EW-CLOS :PCL-VICTORIA :PCL :CLOS :CLX-MIT-R4
:XLIB :CLX :MULTIPROCESSING :LOOP LOOP :UNIX :SUN3 :M68K :SUN
:SUNOS4.0 :FLAVORS :IEEE :CONFORMING-IEEE :COMMON-LISP :ALLEGRO
:EXCL :FRANZ-INC :ALLEGRO-V3.1 :M68020 :M68881 :GSGC
In the file require.lisp, it states that if you're using Franz,
you can use (require :pcl) instead of the larger form. I believe
that this is in error. You must put the (require :pcl) before
that form. If you don't include that form, the pcl package will
not be given a nickname of ew-clos nor will one of the
:pcl-<version> keywords be added to *features*.
You're correct about this error. Thanks for pointing it out.
Your suggestion of putting "(require :pcl)" prior to the larger
form should handle the error well. Probably adding "#+excl
(require :pcl)" would be best.
Assuming that you already made this fix and are still having the
problem, I'm afraid I don't know what the problem is. I just
recompiled EW from a lisp image which already had pcl and clx in
it, and the recompilation went well.
