Re: Problem w/ builtin editor in DOS clisp (August 94)

I am new to lisp, and have been encountering problems with the editor
also. The instructions in the readme file don't specify where to use
the command "(load "editor")" nor how to edit the config.lsp file to
make use of the built in editor. I've tried a variety of approaches
and none of them have been successful. If anyone has a correctly
edited config file they would care to share, I would be very grateful.
I have a 386/40 running DOS.
