uniform frontend to running Common Lisp code from the shell
CL-Launch will allow you to invoke Common Lisp source code from the shell command line or from a shell script. It will also allow you to turn your Common Lisp source programs into standalone executables or executable shell scripts (optionally using a dumped image), depending on the features available in your underlying implementation.
CL-Launch will automatically detect a supported Common Lisp implementation and use adequate invocation options. It can also be configured to fit exactly the programmer's desires. Fully supported implementations are:
Allegro, CLISP, ClozureCL, CMUCL, ECL, GCL 2.7, SBCL, SCL.Of these, SBCL, ECL and CLISP support creating standalone executables. Partially supported implementations are:
LispWorks Professional, ABCL, GCL 2.6, XCL.
CL-Launch also offers Common Lisp programs a simple uniform interface to invocation parameters (command-line arguments and environment variables). It relies on ASDF 2 for system construction. See the ASDF 2 manual for more information on how to configure source and object code location. CL-Launch may dump memory images for fast startup (at the expense of disk space). It can also be used as a quick way to evaluate and print simple Lisp forms or scripts from the command-line without invoking a full-fledged REPL, and to easily compare results between implementations.
