Very interesting! Actually the inspector I have begun working on is
more of a sample/test for the Swing library I'm coding. It mostly
re-uses what's already in abcl and just packages it in a GUI. It seems
Mike's is more powerful, as it also knows about rdf, and maybe more
(I've just given it a quick look). I also see that he wrote his own
little Swing abstraction for the inspector: is LSW itself a GUI
application, or just the inspector? (just curious - I'd like to see as
many abcl+Swing applications as possible in order to improve my
In any case, I'll consider stealing some code :) I have defined a
little object-description abstraction, so I'm not tied to abcl's own
inspector infrastructure only, and I can easily plug in new types of
objects to be inspected. And of course, I'll share my code - it's not
published yet, but I plan to set up a common-lisp.net project soon,
even if the library is still not much more than a sketch.
