Hi,

I am a complete newbie to (c)lisp, but I need
to run the "xerox tagger" which is programmed
in lisp, and compatible with (non ANSI) common LISP.
I run clisp-2.27 on Linux.

To start the installation of the tagger
I have to compile the file

pdefsys.lisp.

When I run the (compile-file "src/pdefsys") command
after cd-ing to the appropriate dir I get the
following message:

Compiling file
/usr/local/taggers/xerox/xerox-1-2/src/pdefsys.lisp
...
*** - There is no package with name "PDEFSYS"

I know that the tagger can be compiled under
CMU CL v17, so it should compile in clisp,
too, shouldn't it?

    since I have no access to the sources (pdefsys.lisp), I can
    only guess.
    I suggest that you look for a package-creating statement in
    the file (probably a make-package form) and replace it with
    defpackage, which is the ANSI way (see
    http://www.lisp.org/HyperSpec/\).
    you will get a better response if you ask on <clisp-list>
    and send there the appropriate portion of the lisp file.
    I also recommend that you read the "ANSI Common Lisp" book
    by Paul Graham.
