A tutorial for ASDF-INSTALL
Created by Edi on: Wed, 11 Jan 2006 00:16:26 GMT, Last modification: Wed, 23 Aug 2006 12:30:31 GMT

This tutorial is intended for people who are relatively new to Common Lisp. It describes an easy way to install third-party libraries into a Lisp implementation.

Document location: http://common-lisp.net/project/asdf-install/tutorial/index.html

While the ANSI standard is huge and provides tons of functionality there are a couple of things (like, say, XML parsers, web servers, GUIs, regular expressions) that aren't included and must either be provided by your particular implementation or otherwise by a third-party library.

Hitherto these libraries had to be installed manually, an often complex process. However, many library authors are now packaging their systems using the new ASDF-INSTALL standard, allowing for automatic installation on any Lisp system that supports it.
