[armedbear-devel] lisp interpreter inside a beanshell JConsole?

Just a heads up that I've got some help from Doug on this and have
made some progress.

Lisp starts up and can do simple things but.

a) Read from console doesn't work. Via button I can load files with
simple stuff like (print 'hello-world).
b) Doing anything beyond simple causes some trouble with autoloading,
I think. Here's the message (I'm trying to load swank here with the
idea of remote connecting from emacs, but e.g. (require 'asdf) gives
me the same error.)

For voyeurs, code's at
