Customizing command loop

From: Frank Reashore <Frank@DREA-WRAITH.ARPA>
In attempting to customize my command loop in
DW:DEFINE-PROGRAM-FRAMEWORK I have encountered a problem in that the
interactor seems to accept only commands and not forms. Clearly this
would only involve a trivial change to the function
DW:DEFAULT-COMMAND-TOP-LEVEL however the source code was not
distributed. I've attempted to write my own top level function but now
find myself wasting time trying to get my menu items properly spaced.
Unless there is some preferred way of obtaining this functionality, could
some kind soul at Symbolics distribute this function on the net. Thanks
You want to use a pane type of :LISTENER rather than :INTERACTOR.
:INTERACTORS only take commands, as in the Document Examiner's typein
:LISTENERS accept commands or forms, as in a Lisp Listener.
