Can someone clarify for me:
When I want to include a package, I borrowed this from init.lisp
(use-package '("COMMON-LISP" "CUSTOM") "EXT")
How does clisp know where to find "EXT", and "COMMON-LISP" or "CUSTOM" =
for that matter?
Does it look in the *load-path* and look for files of that name, or are =
all these packages contained in the files loaded at the top of =
init.lisp? I have not been able to find any files with these names and =
am a little confused. I guess I am stuck in emacs mode which is leading =
to the confusion. If this is not so, what should I be setting my =
*load-path* variable to, as at the moment it is not set to where the =
binaries are kept.
Am I right in thinking that the declaration (in-package "EXT") means =
that from here on in the code is to assume being in the package "EXT", =
so if the (use-package etc) statement above was not there then any calls =
to functions in "COMMON-LISP" would have a common-lisp:: prefix?
I apologise if this is a monumentally stupid question, but after making =
my way through two lisp books, this is still a point of confusion for =
me, and I think it is because it is implementation dependent, which is =
why I am asking on clisp.:)
The reason why I am asking this, is because I have built an image but am =
having problems with defining new variables, it seems I am stuck in the =
"EXT" package, and there were some very helpful mails to someone else =
earlier on the topic, with a solution but I would like to correct the =
package problem at the source, so I am trying to follow what is =
happening in lisp.init and see if I can put the line in at the end so =
clisp starts in the COMMON-LISP-USER package.
Thanks in advance, and sorry this was so long.
