There is a lot of very interesting code by M. Kant. He wrote some himself and
gthered the rest. Most of it is quite well tested and I use some utilities
myself (no bugs, just some configuration needed). Most of the code has at least
minimal documentation. Some of M. Kant's code actually has a complete
documentation (in text, or Postscript format). M. Kant also gathered all kinds
of information about lisp (servers of lisp code, relevant mailing lists...).
You should really contact him to get more information. Here is a message that
recently appeared on the list.
PS: the idea of public lisp code on the MCL CD-ROM is super! I totally agree!
1.4. Obtaining the Utilities
The utilities are available by anonymous ftp from CMU:
- ftp to a.gp.cs.cmu.edu [188.8.131.52] or any other CMU CS machine.
- The directory /afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/mkant/Public/Lisp-Utilities/
contains the files.
[Note: The directory I found the files in was
- cd to this directory in one fell swoop. Do not try to cd or ls any
intermediate directories, since the CMU security mechanisms prevent
access to other directories from an anonymous ftp.
- Use ls to see what files are available. For users accessing the
directory via an anonymous ftp mail server, the file README contains
a current listing and description of the files in the directory. The
file UPDATES describes recent updates to the released versions of the
software in the directory. The file COPYING describes the general
license agreement and lack of warranty.
