A suggestion for more efficient use of the Lisp interpreter clisp

Copyright Gunnar Gotshalks

Use two emacs windows. One window is used to edit a file for loading into the lisp interpreter. The other is to run clisp. By running clisp from within emacs you can use all the editing commands of emacs to create and modify s-expressions. Also you get a complete history which can be cut and paste into new s-expressions or in the file in the other window. For example using the up arrow you can go back in history to a previous command and re-execute it by pressing return.

Emacs has a tutorial and other help facilities available from the menu. The basic editing commands are avaialbe from the menu with keyboard shortcuts indicated.
