I'd like to distribute a few small useful lisp
apps--not with the idea of making money, just to be
useful to some people.
FRANZ makes a good tool, but it's too expensive for my
I have harlequin 4.1 but i find it's UI stuff very
hard to use, and flaky. Some basic things don't work.
There's no documented way to update a listbox after
you've already added items to it, and they acted like
i was crazy because i wanted to do that.
So, i had the idea to compile TK into clisp, and
distribute that with some .fasl files. This seems
do-able. It's also more work than i'd like to do, but
what the heck.
Before i go whole-hog integrating clisp with TK,
though, i must ask:
1) has anyone done this before?
2) is this something people would generally like to
3) Is there some applicable standard for integrating
GUI stuff to lisp?
I could sort-of forsee this being integrated into
future distributions with a compile-time flag.
If this will not be useful, i'll probably not bother.

Sort of. If you are willing to separately ship the Lisp application and a
standard Tcl/Tk distribution if the user's system doesn't come with it, you
may get some idea from the `lisp2wish' page at CLiki:
