A Chip-8 emulator in Common Lisp.

To build this project you'll need to do a few things.

First, install SBCL. You can use your package manager (homebrew, apt,
whatever), or use Roswell, or just get some binaries. This project uses
a few SBCL-specific things, so it won't work with other implementations.

Next, install Quicklisp.

Finally you'll need to clone down this repo and my utility library and
symlink them into Quicklisp's local-projects directory.

Once you've done all that you should be able to run sbcl and use
(ql:quickload :cl-chip8) to load the project and all of its dependencies.
Then use (chip8::run "path/to/a/chip8.rom") to start it up.
