Re: Lisp Debugger

Lispworks has a 'stepper' which lets you step though the execution of your code.

Re: Framebuffer with Common Lisp

It seems directFB is supported as a backend by SDL, so it should be supported by lispbuilder-sdl. You will most likely have to write a couple of routines in C to compose the remote VNC images onto a SDL surface. Performing this kind of operation in Lisp is not efficient as each pixel write goes thro...

I have been bitten by that before.

Re: Sbcl Dll Loading Error-Converting to Text

A question, has anyone had experience with the following problem on windows? You try to load a dll, say libclutter, and you receive an error message that this dll depends on another. Then you try to load that new dll, and it has a new dependency. Thus, you have to go through all the dependencies an...

Re: Rant: lisp is not C. Get over it.

Doesn't cater to beginners: In what way is it harder for beginners than Python or Ruby? It's easier for beginners than C or Java, in my opinion, because of its interactive nature: you can just start typing expressions. And these days there are many good textbooks, such as "Practical Common Lisp". C...

Re: Auto documentation for lisp?(output html, prefered)

Take a look at http://common-lisp.net/project/tinaa/ I hit a problem, somewhat like this guy .. That was an entertaining link, thanks for posting :) I am bemused that Common Lisp is so good at some things, and yet so utterly crap at others. However that being said, most CL projects have a single de...

Re: Any book/resources on Requirements Specs?

With Trac or Redmine you can add something like "For #27" in the checkin message and it will automagically link the tracker entry to the sourcecode and vice versa. Then, tada, traceability. How does it handle changes to requirements over time, or over phases? For example a specific requirment may b...

Re: Any book/resources on Requirements Specs?

At the moment we use it internally. Redmine (and I think most of what follows applies to Trac also) allows you to define custom fields for issue trackers. So for instance I have a Use Cases tracker with fields for the Primary Actor, Goal, Success Guarantees etc. Then I put the body of the use case ...

Corman Lisp doesn't work correctly with ASDF, so not exactly newbie friendly.
