Slurp is my personal code for checking out publically available Common Lisp repositories and later updating them to get the latest changes. Slurp contains a database of public Lisp repositories and knows how to access repositories managed by CVS, Darcs, Git, Mercurial, and Subversion. I only use Slurp with SBCL, so Slurp will require a bit of porting if you are using a different Common Lisp implementation. I hope it will prove useful for you. Please send suggestions and bug reports to robert.brown at the email hosting site gmail.com. You'll need to configure Slurp before you use it. For now, that means editing slurp.lisp itself so that the values of *SOURCE-ROOT* and *SYSTEMS-ROOT* are correct for your system. The parameter *SOURCE-ROOT* names the directory on your computer where Slurp will place checked out source code repositories, while *SYSTEMS-ROOT* indicates which directory Slurp should use when creating symbolic links to the ASDF system definition files in the checked out directories. To be useful, you should make the *SYSTEMS-ROOT* directory a member of ASDF:*CENTRAL-REGISTRY* so that ASDF uses the symbolic links there to compile and load the packages you have checked out. After you have modified *SYSTEMS-ROOT* and *SYSTEMS-ROOT*, load slurp.lisp into your Lisp system. Load the file directly if you do not have ASDF installed: (load "package.lisp") (load "slurp.lisp") If you have ASDF and have also arranged for it to find slurp.asd, then you can load Slurp by executing: (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op 'slurp) Test Slurp by checking out a code repository. The following expression will check out Slime, an Emacs IDE for Common Lisp: (slurp:checkout 'slime) Make sure that the Slime code was checked out in the directory you specified for *SOURCE-ROOT*. Verify also that Slurp created a symbolic link to swank.asd in the directory you chose for *SYSTEMS-ROOT*. At this point you can either check out another repository in Slurp's database or check out all the Lisp repositories Slurp knows about. The second is accomplished by evaluating: (slurp:checkout-all) In either case, at some point you'll want to get the latest version of a repository. To update one repository, use SLURP:UPDATE. The following expression updates Slime: (slurp:update 'slime) To update your local versions of all the repositories, evaluate: (slurp:update-all) Occasionally, something goes wrong when you update one or all the repositories. A repository may be unavailable or you may experience a temporary network glitch. If either happens, you'll end up in the debugger. You can skip over the bad repository and continue the update process with another repository by using the function UPDATE-ALL-STARTING-WITH. For instance, to update all repositories starting with Slime, evaluate: (slurp:update-all-starting-with 'slime) Please send me an email with suggestions for improvements or with patches to support other Common Lisp implementations or source code management systems.
