Common Lisp on FreeBSD - FreeBSD

Hi all, I noticed that the clisp port is marked broken, so I have to look at other choices. Does anyone have any thoughts on the other Lisp ports as a good system to learn on and use? jm --...

    Hi all,

    I noticed that the clisp port is marked broken, so I have to look at other
    choices.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on the other Lisp ports as a good system to
    learn on and use?

    Depends on what you're doing. Other than clisp, the Common Lisp
    implementations in ports are pretty much all derived from the same
    origin (the CMU implementation), so you might as well just try them
    and see what you like; the technical differences shouldn't be that
    big. [That's ignoring the "embeddable" one, but I wouldn't recommend
    that for learning.]

    Or maybe you should consider Scheme... but that's another holy war.

    Good luck.

    Install
    /usr/ports/lang/cmucl
    /usr/ports/lang/cmucl-extra
    /usr/ports/editors/emacs
    /usr/ports/editors/slime

    And you'll get a fast and reliable Common Lisp compiler, some extras
    like an debugger, an editor, an IDE or suchlike for handy Lisp
    development using emacs and a compiler of your choice.

    /usr/ports/lang/cmucl
    Can be substituted for
    /usr/ports/lang/sbcl

    But I like cmucl just fine. You'll fine it has much better support for
    e.g. CLOS than clisp has.

    I think I've decided to stick with clisp for now, until I find a reason to
    change. The REPL seems nicer, for one thing.

    No thanks. I've had enough of those. :-)

    Say, have you fooled around with any clisp GUI toolkits?
