When the default external format used by a lisp implementation (which usually depends on environment variables LANG or LC_ALL) is different from the source files encoding used by cl-num-utils, the compilation fails.
Here is an example compilation log:
ASDF now allows do add
to your defsystem. To be backward compatible with old ASDF versions,
it may be protected by reader conditionals like this:
(related ASDF manual chapter
Added encoding, prettyfied defsystem forms.
- Fixes issue #14. Decided not to use reader conditionals, pretty much
all recent systems should have at least ASDF 2.21 by now.
- Tests does not need to depend on libraries cl-num-utils depends on
since those are loaded with it.
Fixed it, thanks for the bug report. Decided not to use reader conditionals since I assume that everybody has at least ASDF 2.21 now.
I am not absolutely sure everyone already updated to the latest ASDF.
For example the latest release of CLISP is 2.49 was made at 2010-07-07. It comes with ASDF 2.011.
Quicklisp also hasn't updated it's copy of ASDF (although it's only used if the lisp implementation does not provide ASDF already).
I would suggest to keep the reader conditionals
OK, did that. Thanks for the information.
