Description: uniform frontend to running Common Lisp code from the shell
CL-Launch will allow you to invoke Common Lisp source code from the shell
command line, from a shell script or as a Common Lisp script. It will also
allow you to turn your Common Lisp source programs into standalone
executables or executable shell scripts (optionally using a dumped image),
depending on the features available in your underlying implementation.
CL-Launch will automatically detect a supported Common Lisp implementation
and use adequate invocation options. It can also be configured to fit exactly
the programmer's desires. Fully supported implementations are:
Allegro, CLISP, ClozureCL, CMUCL, ECL, MKCL, SBCL, SCL.
Partially supported implementations are:
LispWorks Professional, ABCL, GCL, XCL.
Creating standalone executables is supported on:
CLISP, ClozureCL, CMUCL, LispWorks, SBCL, SCL
CL-Launch also offers Common Lisp programs a simple uniform interface to
invocation parameters (command-line arguments and environment variables).
It relies on ASDF 3 for system construction. See the ASDF 3 manual for
more information on how to configure source and object code location.
CL-Launch may dump memory images for fast startup (at the expense of disk
space). It can also be used as a quick way to evaluate and print simple Lisp
forms or scripts from the command-line without invoking a full-fledged REPL,
and to easily compare results between implementations.
