2) During this port, I am thinking of changing over to CLOS.
What experiences has anyone had in doing a Flavors to CLOS
I also had to do precisely this for a planning and scheduling system
that we developed here. Based on my experience, I would urge you to
consider doing the conversion on the Symbolics before porting. Load the
system Conversion Tools and then invoke the functionality (there are a
few variants of the command, and I forgot the names) from Zmacs. I was
very pleased at how well this worked for our system and shudder to think
about how painful it would have been to do "by hand".
Ditto, on an experiment I did with Joshua. It is fairly trivial, with
perhaps the need to put a WITH-SLOTS (self ...) ... around all the
bodies of the methods to give you lexical access to the IVs.
Sometime I'll tell you what it's like doing a LOOPS to CLOS
