Fare Rideau's cl-launch offers a single, uniform way to invoke lisp programs from a unix shell for all of SBCL, CMUCL, clisp, GCL, OpenMCL and Allegro.

CL-Launch will create a shell script that, when invoked, will evaluate the specified Lisp software with an appropriate Common Lisp implementation.

The software is specified as the execution, in this order, of:

  • loading a small header of code that provides common cl-launch functionality
  • optionally loading the contents of a FILE (option --file)
  • optionally having ASDF load a SYSTEM (option --system)
  • optionally evaluating a series of initialization FORMS (option --init)

Does this mean lisp is finally coming down from the ivory towers to hang out with the rest of us command-line monkeys?

Maybe lisp will be the new perl.
