The readme file that we will be shipping with 2.0 final will probably
be helpful:


This directory contains the files S.LISP, SDOC.TXT, and STEST.LISP, as 
obtained from the "/pub/series/" anonymous FTP directory on ftp.ai.mit.edu
on January 13, 1992.

See the file "SDOC.TXT" for general installation instructions.  Note that
the SERIES package defined in "S.LISP" uses the "LISP" (vice "COMMON-LISP")
package and that the IN-PACKAGE form near the beginning of that file
is a call to the (CLtL1) function of that name.

To compile this file in MCL, it's necessary to make sure that the "LISP"
package is defined and that the current package is some package which
uses the "LISP" package - the "USER" package, for instance.

One way of doing this is:

? (require "LISP-PACKAGE")
? (in-package "USER")
#<Package "USER">
? (load (compile-file "ccl:series;s.lisp"))
; etc.
