Hello, I am trying to use SB-BSD-SOCKETS in ecl, however, since there is no documentation about that, I am using documentation on SBCL webpage (which is supposed to be the same for sockets), however, SOCKET-SEND according to help on sbcl webpage can accept string as buffer, however, this method is failing for me in ecl:

Most likely this is due to the fact that the string is not a base-string, but a unicode-string. In that circumstance the C routine cannot cope with the buffer pointer and the FFI refuses to perform the appropriate C call.

I am not sure how to proceed on this.
