2 Installation

See Supported Platforms, for information on portability or requirements. See FoCus’s homepage for tarballs, Git repository and online documentation. FoCus is also available via Quicklisp.

In order to install and load the bare Lisp library, unpack it somewhere in the ASDF 3 source registry and type this at the REPL:

(asdf:load-system :net.didierverna.focus)

Alternatively, if you just want to use the core library without the extensions (see Technical Notes), you can also just load the ‘net.didierverna.focus.core’ system.

In addition to the bare Lisp library, the FoCus distribution offers documentation in the form of 2 different manuals. If you want to benefit from all those wonders, some bits of manual installation are needed. After unpacking somewhere in the ASDF 3 source registry, please perform the following steps, in order.

  1. Edit make/config.make to your specific needs.
  2. Type make to compile the documentation (user manual and possibly reference manual). By default, the documentation is built in info, PDF and HTML formats. If you want other formats (DVI and PostScript are available), type make all-formats. You can also type individually make dvi and/or make ps in order to get the corresponding format.
  3. As documented in make/config.make, the reference manual is only generated if you have SBCL and the Declt library at hand (see
  4. Type make install to install the documentation. If you have compiled the documentation in DVI and PostScript format, those will be installed as well.

Type make uninstall to uninstall the library.
