May Day PCL (Rev 2) with AKCL 1.505
I just compiled it and was puzzled by a few things.
* During the compile-pcl process, KCL ran out of value stack
when "Loading the binary of defs...". I looked at a backtrace,
and there wasn't much there. SO I tried to get it to use less
value stack (thinking it might _almost_ fit) by compiling defsys.
Amazingly enough, this worked. Is this a sign that the value
stack ought to be larger?
* There's no "test.lisp" in the PCL tarfile. Is this an oversight
or is there a good reason? (I note that the test.lisp from the
Victoria Day release doesn't work any more.) Is there a test.lisp
in "Rev 3"?
* Why is the compiler sometimes called when I define a class or
when I instantiate one? (And at other times.) Is this the
* It takes a noticeable time to load PCL, significantly more than
for the Victoria Day version. Is this what other people have
PS Is there any reason to get Rev 3?
