Dear Fellow Worldwide Members of the CLISP-LIST:
I just subscribed yesterday and I am not sure of the etiquette to be
followed in getting assistance from the group. I'm aware that this is
going to everyone but this is a legit question and problem and I'm not
trying to sell anything. I emailed this to Bruno Haible yesterday but I'm
not sure whether he has time to answer every inquiry that comes his way.
Hoping for your assistance:

I'm having a problem installing clisp for OS2. I'm not really sure how
serious a problem it is as I have not really progressed past installation.
It does appear to execute and the LISP prompt comes up. Here is a
description of my system:
80386DX 40Mhz 8 M Memory, OS/2 V3
Here is what happened:
I DID edit the short-site-name and long-site-name in the config.lsp
I just put my U.S.A. address in place of your address. I then edited the
timezone definition to show "Eastern-US" which is the time zone within
which I live. Saved both files and rebooted.
Went to the OS/2 command prompt.
Typed: lisp.exe -M lispinit.mem CR
LISP prompt appeared after the Copyright and a menorah.
Typed (compile-file "config") CR
Appeared a line to the effect that config.lsp was being compiled.
Then appeared an error message as follows:
*READ from #<STRING-CHAR-FILE-STREAM #"C:\\PROGLANG\\CLISP-OS\\CONFIG.LSP">
(C:\PROGLANG\CLISP-OS is the directory housing all of the clisp files on my
Next line: ILLEGAL CHARACTER #\Code26
(I was now in the debugger (1. BREAK > ) )
I had difficulty understanding how to use the debugger commands but I typed
EVAL frame for form (COMPILE-FILE "config")
The clisp version I have is dated 1994-08-27.
Hopefully you have seen this problem before and can give me a prompt and
simple answer. I am not sure how serious the problem is as I wrote earlier
because I stopped at that step of the installation. I did try some work
after I aborted out of the debugger and at least the simple things I tried
evaluated correctly and had the correct side effects.
I would appreciate it if you would also cc your response to:

Thank you for your assistance in advance.
