Hi Budden!

I see I can only do that with shell or batch.

I would like to confirm, is it possible to create  new operation for ASDF 3.1 regardless of cleaning up .fasl files?

I googled, but there is no particular code to create new operation for an asdf manual but there is a section for creating a new operation at asdf manual. 

Could you tell me an example that just print "hello asdf", and it is named hello-op likes this Makefile

   echo "hello asdf"

Thank you for your telling.
