Thanks to everyone's help, I got "5/1/90 May Day PCL (REV 2)"
to compile with AKCL version 1.478 (on an HP 9000/300 series computer).
It also loads.
Now for the stupid question: how do I use it?
It's not clear from the "documentation". I expected that after executing
the LISP interpreter would be in a state where I could type in a class
(defclass foo () ())
but I get an error:
Error: The function DEFCLASS is undefined.
Error signalled by EVAL.
However, (pcl:defclass foo () ()) works. But does one always have to qualify
such symbols? To avoid this I tried executing
but I get the following:
Error: Cannot use #<"PCL" package>
from #<"USER" package>,
because PCL:DEFCLASS and DEFCLASS will cause
a name conflict.
Error signalled by USE-PACKAGE.
That seems odd, given the previous error....
I tried using defsystem and operate-on-system but they don't seem to be
defined or exported by the pcl package.
Can someone provide me a *small* example?
