The HyperSpec-7-0 directory in this thin ASDF wrapper is a complete and unmodified copy of Lispworks' Common Lisp HyperSpec version 7.0 (referenced from <http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/common-lisp.html>). Redistribution of the HyperSpec is made with permission from LispWorks per the terms and restrictions set forth at <http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Front/Help.htm#Legal>. You may further redistribute the HyperSpec subject to the same terms and restrictions; consult the previous link for all details. This thin ASDF wrapper was prepared by Jean-Philippe Paradis (firstname.lastname@example.org) for inclusion in Quicklisp and is not endorsed by LispWorks Ltd. Common Lisp HyperSpec is a registered trademark of LispWorks Ltd. Jean-Philippe Paradis is not a lawyer, has not consulted a lawyer, and prepared this thin ASDF wrapper as a community service on a "good faith, best-effort" basis. The original download was a .tar.gz file and has been uncompressed for your convenience. The primary use cases for downloading the HyperSpec to your hard drive instead of using the online documentation at <http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Front/index.htm> are to benefit from the increased responsiveness inherent in browsing a local resource and to ensure reliable, fast access from anywhere while on the go (ex: laptop, smartphone). Use (clhs:print-emacs-setup-form) to print the command used to tell Emacs to use your new local copy of CLHS. (Note that the default setup involves automatic creation and usage of a symlink that points to the 'HyperSpec' directory within the "real top-level" 'HyperSpec-7-0' directory. Don't redistribute the former without the latter!) Slime has commands to quickly get at what you want in the HyperSpec. They are: slime-documentation-lookup (C-c C-d h) Lookup a symbol (such as "make-instance"). common-lisp-hyperspec-lookup-reader-macro (C-c C-d #) Lookup a reader-macro (such as "#'" or "("). common-lisp-hyperspec-format (C-c C-d ~) Lookup a FORMAT directive (such as "~A"). If the default browser used is not the one you wanted, here's how you might tell Emacs to use Firefox instead: (setq browse-url-firefox-program "firefox") Or Google Chrome: (setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-generic) (setq browse-url-generic-program "google-chrome")
