Re: Pipe program output to stream

Re: Lisp, Windows and OpenGL

From what I can read to be able to create windows and such I will have somehow to use cffi to call the WinAPI? Have a look at Graphic-Forms . I haven't used it, but it seems to be what you're looking for. Of course, the web site also says: Graphic-Forms is in the alpha stage of development, meaning...

Re: Slime Not Working in EMACS

I tried deleting the slime directory and checking it out again, but I got the same result. Oh well, then I don't know what the problem is. Do you think there would be a way to get an earlier version of SLIME to see if that would work? Yes, in the directory that you checked out slime to, do somethin...

I think you're getting tripped up by the fact that a character can be represented in various different ways (using a different number of bytes per character depending on the representation). What happens if you have a text stream made up of characters where the underlying data is in two bytes per ch...
