Answer: This is a problem with the current version of MCL since it
does not understand the launch directory
Worse clicking a MCL document causes a previously saved independent
application to launch automatically.
This launched application is not related to the docum
ent clicked and even resides on a different hard disk.
To solve the problem, you need to set the creator of the document to
a special value using the following template:
(defun make-hier-demo ()
(let ((target-appl (choose-new-file-dialog :directory "ccl;hier")))
:excise-compiler t ; don't want the compiler
:clear-clos-caches nil ; otherwise we can't access classes
This will correct your problem. If you do not complete the creator
field, it is MCL2 which causes the system to become moderately confused.
