These are instructions on how to make ASDF work with Corman Common Lisp (or rather vice versa).
Document location: http://weitz.de/corman-asdf/These are instructions on how to make ASDF work with Corman Common Lisp (CCL) 2.5 (or rather vice versa). CCL has several problems with respect to ANSI compatibility and thus ASDF can't be used out of the box. As a consequence, CCL users don't have convenient access to many open source libraries (check out CLiki or common-lisp.net) out there. They either have to find another way to load these libraries, or, if they're new to Lisp, they'll probably end up not using these libraries at all.
If you're a registered CCL user you should probably ask your vendor to support the full ANSI standard but until then you can try the workarounds described here if you want to deploy ASDF. Note that these workarounds are intended for people who want to load third-party libraries via ASDF. As we currently have to disable file compilation it is not recommended to use ASDF in conjunction with CCL for the development of your own libraries.
