#23 McCLIM/mit-clx: fail to connect to X server


I use McCLIM with mit-clx. When I run any demo application I always get the same connection error to my local X server. The problem, I think, is in erroneous fetching of protocol name from ~/.Xautority. I remember the same bug in telent-clx some time ago. I made the same changes as in telent-clx against clisp/modules/clx/mit-clx/display.lisp . Now McCLIM application runs well.

    Today I start a process of merging telent-clx and mit-clx. I downloaded recent telent-clx from Darcs repository and made some hacking. Now telent-clx compiles and runs on CLISP. Some examples from clx/demo directory (menu.lisp, clclock.lisp) work well and some others don't. McCLIM also runs but somewhat buggy. I need more time to do the improvements.

    BTW, code like
    (dotimes (k length)
    (setf (aref vector k) (read-byte stream)))
    screams for READ-SEQUENCE!
