Portable Windows for Common Lisp?
I would like to incorporate a machine-portable windowing capability
in my Common Lisp program (e.g. portable between Explorer, Symbolics,
SUN with CL interpreter). I don't want to have to rewrite my window-
based code every time I change machines, and would appreciate an easy
to use (high-level interface) from Common Lisp. Full functionality
like displaying windows on other machines would be nice; mouse-based
interaction is essential. Free/cheapware is of particular interest.
For example, I've heard X windows is an emerging standard used on
many machines, and I have gotten the impression that some vendors
are supplying high level CL interfaces to X windows.
Could someone give me a pithy description of what my options are?
Currently I am using a Symbolics Lisp machine, "soon" to be upgraded
to Genera 8.0.
Sorry to be asking such an elementary question. I have had trouble getting
a coherent picture from the spate of messages on windowing systems.
