A thin compatibility layer for Gray streams Maintained by:olgeni@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 17 Jan 2010 21:30:03 Also Listed In:lisp License: not specified in port
trivial-gray-streams is a trivial library which provides an extremely
thin compatibility layer for Gray streams.
From David N. Gray's STREAM-DEFINITION-BY-USER proposal:
"Common Lisp does not provide a standard way for users to define
their own streams for use by the standard I/O functions. This impedes
the development of window systems for Common Lisp because, while
there are standard Common Lisp I/O functions and there are beginning
to be standard window systems, there is no portable way to connect
them together to make a portable Common Lisp window system. There
are also many applications where users might want to define their
own filter streams for doing things like printer device control,
report formatting, character code translation, or encryption/decryption."
This package is compiled with CLISP.
When building ASDF modules with the previous cl-asdf port version,
sometimes the build would fail because of "missing" packages that
weren't actually missing (this only happened in ports that aren't
Rewrite the FASL placement code using the asdf-binary-locations
extension, which is already included in the cl-asdf port but needs
to be installed from ports when building for SBCL (which has its
own ASDF code). The binary-locations code generates paths unsuitable
for PLISTs, therefore it has been overridden with
Because of the new code, PLIST generation for cl-*-sbcl and cl-*-clisp
ports is now entirely automated.
All dependent cl-* ports are upgraded (obsolete code removed,
