Val Kulyukin, my colleague from the U of Chicago days, mentioned the other day that he had run into exactly the same bug I saw when running ACL-created DLLs in Visual Basic. His solution: switch to LispWorks. We're looking into that possibility. The bits of the LispWorks IDE I've seen make me want to play with it more; Maybe it could even begin to be compared to MCL's, who knows.
Val's advice: Develop in ACL, deliver with LispWorks.
It looks like Val has some lisp code worth checking out: code to control the Microsoft Agent, control Saphira robots, and control Internet Explorer. He's also using the public domain version of our RAP agent programming language for some of his work.
(Also, I like the Bertrand Russel quote at the end of Val's Integrating Lisp With the World tutorial: "Tolerate and cooperate, or die.")Posted by jjwiseman at April 08, 2002 04:30 PM
