Here’s what I did, though perhaps a better order of steps exists:
- Downloaded Emacs for OSX
Downloaded ClozureCL from the Mac App Store.
Ran ClozureCL, then “File -> Load File …”, and selected
(ql:add-to-init-file)to make sure I don’t have to repeat this step again
(ql:quickload :quicklisp-slime-helper). This downloaded SLIME and told me what to add to my
`(load (expand-file-name “~/quicklisp/slime-helper.el”))`
- Made a useful symlink:
`ln -s /Applications/Clozure CL.app/Contents/MacOS/dx86cl64 ~/bin/ccl`
- Added a reference to this in my
`(setq inferior-lisp-program “~/bin/ccl”)`
- Ran emacs,
M-x slimeworks !
(or as the prompt says, “Happy hacking!”)
