Server migration imminent

On monday 2014.09.22, at 11:00 am CET, all services on this server will migrate to a new machine. Inevitably, this means that the server will be down for at least an hour. Due to DNS propagation lag services might be unavailable to you for a few hours.

See here for details.

What is Common Lisp?

Common Lisp is the modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance, compiled, ANSI-standardized descendant of the long-running family of Lisp programming languages.

Common Lisp is known for being extremely flexible, having excellent support for object oriented programming, and fast prototyping capabilities. It also sports an extremely powerful macro system that allows you to tailor the language to your application, and a flexible run-time environment that allows modification and debugging of running applications (excellent for server-side development and long-running critical software).

Common Lisp is a multi-paradigm programming language that allows you to to choose the approach and paradigm according to your application domain.


This should be all about how to install CL for unix, windows, and OSX.
