Hi Paul, have you tried adding :clx to the dependencies list of your ASDF file? If that is not present, there is no way ECL knows that CLX must be part of your system. An alternative is to insert an explicit (require :clx) at the beginning of your program, but then you will have to ship clx.fas with your program.

Juanjo:

After adding ":depends-on (:clx)" to my ".asd" file, "clx-gui-mono" no longer errors out. I tried ":depends-on (:xlib)" which is also in "*features*" but it didn't like that.

 However, I still haven't discovered how to invoke "(clx-gui:start)" when I run "clx-gui-mono". All "clx-gui-mono" does when I run it is terminate without doing anything.

It is there: the :epilogue-code is a keyword argument with, typically, a lisp statement. Even simpler: all statements in your lisp code are executed in sequence at startup time. Just add a (clx-gui:start) at the end.

Juanjo and Matt:

Thanks for the help.

Juanjo: I had previously tried placing "(clx-gui:start) at the end of my code, but that caused an error when compiling (didn't look to hard at why) so I removed it. I completely missed the :epilogue-code as the possible solution when I was perusing the manual. I finally tried "(progn(clx-gui:start) (ext:quit 0))" as :epilogue-code after you mentioned it and that worked for me.

Matt: I appreciate your tip on "(pushnew :mm-ecl-standalone *features*)" and I'll get around to using it later on when I gain more experience with Common Lisp in general and ECL in particular. My programming abilities with Common Lisp have all been self-taught and I'm still pretty much a novice at it (in my opinion).

Again, thanks to you both for getting a novice on track.
