Changes to ilisp.texi (from the draft for version 5.9 to 5.9.4)
(lesson learned from maintaining this file: I should have sorted and
grouped entries by date - Paolo Amoroso ;-)
-- Updated version information about ILISP and the manual.
-- Merged changes (based on an old version of the document) done by Marco
and distributed with 5.9 (let's hope everything is OK ;-)
-- Added the @finalout directive to prevent TeX from marking overfulls.
-- Split the @author directive over two lines to fix a huge overfull.
-- Updated and sorted the list of contributors in section "Acknowledgments"
(double check it).
-- Updated the entry about dialect support in the list of ILISP features of
-- Added info about ILISP-BUG in section "How to get the latest ILISP
-- Renamed section "FTP and WWW directions" to "FTP and Web directions"
(the term WWW is out of fashion: now everybody calls it the Web; okay,
it's a marketing trick to make ILISP look modern :)
-- Added an item about ILD to the list of ILISP features in section
-- Updated sections "How to install ILISP" and "Configuration and
compilation" (formerly "Makefile configuration").
-- Added to section "How to install ILISP" info about the HyperSpec
packages included with ILISP.
-- Renamed section "Makefile configuration" to "Configuration and
compilation" (it deals with more than makefile configuration).
-- Removed section "How to define autoload entries". Now section
"Configuration and compilation" provides appropriate instructions for
-- Updated section "Files of ILISP". Now files are sorted alphabetically.
-- Added attribute @code to the dialect names in the bullet list of section
"How to run a Lisp process using ILISP". Now dialect names are sorted
-- Rearranged the text of section "How to run a Lisp process using ILISP"
so that the dialect tree is not split over two pages.
-- Added XLisp and XLisp-Stat to section "How to run a Lisp process using
-- Added some info on Scheme->C support to section "How to run a Lisp
process using ILISP".
-- Added in section "Eval and compile functions" info about the
initializations performed by the very first inferior Lisp command
executed by the user (from a note at the end of the Texinfo source for
the 5.9 draft, after the @bye directive; the info about the *ILISP-SEND*
buffer was already in the manual).
-- Documented ILISP-ARGLIST-MESSAGE-LISP-SPACE in section "Documentation
-- Added in section "Documentation functions" info about the HyperSpec
lookup command, and warned that the fi:clman module is no longer loaded
-- Fixed keybindings for SET-BUFFER-PACKAGE-LISP and SET-PACKAGE-LISP in
section "Package Commands". Removed from the same section the
description of PACKAGE-LISP, which is no longer included with ILISP.
-- Added info about TRACE-DEFUN-LISP-BREAK in section "Tracing functions"
(from the TODO comment in the Texinfo source for the 5.9 draft; the
comment mentioned TRACE-DEFUN-BREAK).
-- Added section "Interface to Lisp debuggers" on ILD after "Interrupts,
aborts, and errors".
-- Added info about BOL-ILISP in section "Miscellany" (from a note at the
end of the Texinfo source for the 5.9 draft, after the @bye directive).
-- Added info about BACKWARD-DELETE-CHAR-UNTABIFY in section "Miscellany"
(from a note at the end of the Texinfo source for the 5.9 draft, after
the @bye directive).
-- Added XLisp and XLisp-Stat to the hierarchy of section "ILISP
-- The hierarchies of Lisp dialects are now sorted alphabetically wherever
possible. They have also been updated with newly supported Scheme
-- Renamed the top level Common Lisp dialect from clisp to common-lisp.
-- Renamed with a consistent capitalization all occurrences of Emacs,
LEmacs, XEmacs, Lisp, etc. (I suspect that when people read the word
LISP, they think to McCarthy's LISP 1.5 of the early sixties...).
-- Marked Scheme support as experimental.
-- Added several index entries.
-- Corrected a few typos.
