[Note: the text below is the README that came with the practicals I distributed when PCL was published in 2005. I'm hoping to update a few things to allow this code to run in a more modern environment. At some point I'll update this README.] This directory contains the source code for _Practical Common Lisp_. You may use and redestribute this software according to the terms of the license in file LICENSE. The code is designed to be loaded with Another System Definition Facility (ASDF) and each chapter directory contains its own ASD file. You can either add the name of each ChapterXX directory to ASDF:*CENTRAL-REGISTRY* or you can create symlinks to the ASD files in those directories in a directory that is already named in ASDF:*CENTRAL-REGISTRY*. If you also add this directory to the central registry or create a symlink to the file practicals.asd you can then load all the practicals code by typing: (asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op :practicals) at the REPL. You can also load the code for individual chapters by loading the system of the same name as the ASD file in each ChapterXX directory. ./Chapter03/simple-database.asd ./Chapter08/macro-utilities.asd ./Chapter09/test-framework.asd ./Chapter15/pathnames.asd ./Chapter23/spam.asd ./Chapter24/binary-data.asd ./Chapter25/id3v2.asd ./Chapter26/url-function.asd ./Chapter27/mp3-database.asd ./Chapter28/shoutcast.asd ./Chapter29/mp3-browser.asd ./Chapter31/html.asd Thus to load the test framework code from Chapter 9, you'd type: (asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op :test-framework) at the REPL. (Note that Chapter31/ contains the code for both Chapters 30 and 31.) Alternatively, you can download the Practical Common Lisp, Lispbox distribution from: http://www.gigamonkeys.com/lispbox/ which provides the easy-to install Emacs + SLIME Lisp development environment discussed in the book. That distribution contains all the book's code already set up to be loaded with ASDF. --Peter Seibel
