For those of you who might have been struggling with MACTCP.LISP
(available on this archive), I found a little tip: YOU MUST BE RUNNING
MCL ON THE SAME VOLUME AS THE SYSTEM FOLDER!!!
I kept on getting an error during execution (something to the effect
of a "NIL is not MACPTR" or somesuch); I finally decided to really
start digging around in the code to figure out what was going on.
The "%load-resolver" function wasn't reading the resource file
for MacTCP correctly (got a "resource file not found" for the resource
file "MacTCP DNR", which is dynamically loaded to do TCP name
In frustration, I decided to copy MCL to my system disk and voila! It
Just hoping this will save someone else the same trouble I had. I am
now communicating via TCP with a server on my SUN; I'll try to publish
some small examples in the next few weeks (SUN and MCL code, both).
