CCL IDE Pledge Drive Update

Hello MCL Users --

I'm happy to report that the Clozure CL Development Environment Pledge  
Drive is going well.

We have received pledges totaling $19,150.  That brings us over 90% of  
the way to our goal of $20,000.

[Imagine thermometer graphic here, with red bar reaching almost to the  
top.]

Please help us reach our goal, so we can get down to work building the  
best Common Lisp IDE anywhere.  When we announced the Pledge Drive, we  
requested pledges of $500 or more.  At this time, we'd like to open it  
up to contributions of any amount.  Every little bit will help us  
reach our goal of $20,000.

You can contribute directly through PayPal: just direct your payment
"payments@... 
".  To make a pledge or payment another way, please contact me at
alms@... 
.

Please make your pledge today.

To recap:

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to support two months of development on  
the CCL IDE, running on Mac OS X.  This will allow us to greatly  
improve the quality and reliability of the CCL IDE, and bring it into

Re: CCL IDE Pledge Drive Update

Some of us might be able to contribute if it was somehow a transaction 
with an invoice, receipt, etc. 
The accounting dept here won't go for "pledge" but surely there's a way ...

Error while building

Hello,

I am trying to build a software package for OS X 10.5 on a PPC machine 
using MCL-5.1 (currently the demo version). The software in question and 
build instructions are available here:

http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/repmus/OpenMusic/dev-doc/build-om5/buildmacos.html

It loads/compiles all of the lisp files, but throws an error while 
attempting to save the executable image. The error is:

 > Error: phooey
 > While executing: CCL::NAV-CHOOSE-NEW-FILE-DIALOG
 > Type Command-. to abort.

It doesn't really give me much to go on. I've tried to build the package 
in MCL-5.2, but it appears to duplicate various functions that are now 
in the kernel. I get various errors such as:

 > Error: The function XXX is already defined in the MCL kernel.

Does the demo version of MCL-5.1 limit saving images? Is there a guide 
somewhere on how to move a project from MCL-5.1 to MCL-5.2?

If anyone could offer me some advice, or nudge me in the right 
direction, I would really appreciate it.

Best,
Scott

Re: CCL IDE Pledge Drive Update

Hi Mark --

good question.  Not surprisingly, this has come up in the past.  To  
handle it, we've decided to begin selling supported copies of Clozure  
CL, as follows:

Clozure CL + 1 support incident   = $250
Clozure CL + 2 support incidents = $500
Clozure CL + 5 support incidents = $1,000
etc.

We're happy to generate an invoice for a supported copy of CCL for  
anyone who wants one.  Just let us know the number of support  
incidents you want, or the amount you want to spend, and let us know  
the organization, department, etc that we should be invoicing.

Once the purchase is complete, you can use the support incidents to  
get direct support for your work, or you can direct us to use them for  
improvements to the CCL IDE.

Would that work for you?  More importantly, would it wok for your  
accounting department?

cheers,
Andrew

Thanks for the quick reply!

No, I wasn't aware of these... that cleared up the dialog error.

Yes, still a problem. I was hoping MCL 5.2 would help with that, but I 
am very new to LISP, and have no experience with the MCL environment.

Well, since you asked ;-)

The first few errors I have come across seem to fall into problems 
redefining existing kernel functions. My strategy is to simply comment 
these out and defer to the kernel versions. However, this line:

(require 'toolequ)

AFAICS  ccl:lib;toolequ  is in versions of MCL 
prior to 5.2 but not in 5.2 or MCL 5.1 demo.
It seems to load OK under 5.2.

Alice, is it OK to upload here, or perhaps add to 5.2 distribution?

Interesting. However, OM does seem to load fine with MCL-5.1-demo, and 
only throws the error with MCL 5.2. I can't seem to find the file 
(toolequ.lisp, I'm guessing) in either distribution, though.

I haven't run into a time limit for the Personal Edition, but you are 
correct on the first two points.

:-) of course!

Thanks again,
