eyes black and white

My name is cl-launch but my friends call me cl

I am pleased to tell you about the new release 1.74 of CL-Launch, that small infrastructure I wrote to make your Common Lisp software easy to access from a Unix command line.

Since I initially announced cl-launch on this blog, it has grown a variety of features making it more usable, such as the easy execution of cl-launch from a script, a short notation for common cases (read-eval-print of single form), the ability to dump Lisp images for fast startup, support for more implementations (sbcl, clisp, cmucl, openmcl, gcl, allegro), a small library of Lisp functions, extensive documentation, debian packages, and more.

To make it more usable, I even officially adopted the shorter alias cl to invoke cl-launch. Enjoy!
