Please make sure to read the slime manual so you can use lisp-in-a-box appropriately


 Based on my conversations with a few of you, it looks like some of you don't quite realize the power of the emacs-lisp interface that comes
free with lisp-in-a-box.  Part of the problem may be that the intallation doesn't come directly with a help manual.

There is however a lot of help information on the lisp-in-a-box homepage itself (http://common-lisp.net/project/lispbox/ )

The most important of the lot is the slime manual which is available at


Make sure you read it--or you will be wasting your time by doing all development at the command-line. (When in doubt as to whether or not
certain interactive program development support is available for lisp, remind yourself that all interactive programming development ideas
originally *came* from lisp environments!)
