Joachim Laubsch (firstname.lastname@example.org) graciously supplied us with
his extensive GNU/Common Lisp interface. I have made it available via
anonymous ftp to math.ufl.edu <22.214.171.124> under the filename
~ftp/pub/gnu-cl2.tar.Z. If you experience any problems retrieving it,
please query me: email@example.com.
An extract from Joachim's description is appended below.

Thanks for your interest in the CLOS Browser. It is part of a larger
GnuEmacs Lucid CL interface (which does not use Lucid's built in
editor, but Gnu Emacs instead). See a summary at the end:
There are three options:
(1) If you are using HP COMMON LISP II (Lucid), X11 or X10, and GNU
Emacs, it makes sense for you to get the entire code.
(2) For those who have a SUN and Lucid CL and GNU (or those who don't
want the whole thing): It would not require much work to adapt this.
I can only think of the activation of menus via the mouse as having to
be modified. If you want to ONLY use the Inspector part, it needs a
minor amount of work. Basically you have to redefine run-lisp s.t. it
starts a process with a filter "lisp-filter-prompts" which is a
function that first parses the CL output to see whether there is
something special to be displayed by Emacs. The CL part
(clos-inspect.l) should require no modification.
(3) For those who have Allegro: I have no idea whether it would work
at all. (I doubt it very much, since a detailed defnition of inspect
is not part of the CL-standard.)
GNU-Emacs Interface to HP Common Lisp II (Version 1.5)
Joachim Laubsch (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Requirements: GNU-Emacs with popup-menus, X11 or X10, HPCLII.
(May also by used via M-x commands without window system.)
Features: CL mode with many useful commands, e.g. completion
of LISP symbols, evaluating regions or expressions.
Notification in modeline about package, DEBUG mode and level.
Inspector for CL and CLOS (PCL)
Menu-interface to debug, trace, and compiling
Extensions and interface to Emacs TAGS facility.
Support for running on a home (non-X) terminal.
