In system 37.1, with microcode 684, on LISP Machine Seven:
There is no easy way for me to get my hands on a process and run EH on
it. The process is the editor, which was looping.
I suppose there is some variable which contains it but I can't guess the
name, and it is hard to find it if I can't use the editor. In any case,
it should not be necessary to know it. It should be possible to do this\n from the PEEK W mode display, or from the system menu.
One problem is that if I type CALL to get a Lisp listener, for some
reason the editor process is no longer active. Maybe this is a feature,
but it means I can't find the process on ACTIVE-PROCESSES.
If the PEEK W mode made it easy to get a window out and operate on it
with Lisp code, that would be more useful. Perhaps PEEK W mode really
ought to live in the inspect window rather than in PEEK. I might have
been able to find it with the inspector after several steps, but I
didn't know where to start. In any case, a display of the window hierarchy
with each window available for inspection would be a useful addition to
I'm sure a person familiar enough with the insides of NWS could have
found it, but I don't think that is the answer.
