Common Lisp Manpages (cl-manpages)

Common Lisp is, perhaps, my favourite programming language. However, it's a big language — it has 978 external symbols defined in the ISO standard — and I'm constantly needing to look up the syntax or semantics for some function. I use the REPL, but spend most of my time doing things the old fashioned way, with a text editor, and there are no man pages. Or there weren't... so I decided to create some.

I'm creating pages for the language itself; I'm guessing there will be about 500 pages before the set is complete. I'm also adding pages for some common packages which I use (asdf, cl-unicode, and so on). At just a few a week, this might take a couple of years, but it has been a good refresher putting them together.

This project is in its very early stages (it started in January 2017), so there aren't many pages there yet. Furthermore, for now, only the html versions are available: I haven't yet finished the scripts to convert from HTML to troff.

(Yes, I use the hyperspec, and I also keep a copy of the Standard open in a window, but I like man pages: they're easy and quick.)

The initial set of pages, in html format only, is here.

Eventually, I'll also make a tarball available on this site, but until then (and after, too) you can find the project at https://github.com/wakinyantanka/cl-manpages
